2. Downtown Canton Coffee Crawl | October 14 | Canton Arts District

It’s all happening on Saturday, October 14th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. throughout downtown Canton. You’ll enjoy coffee, tea, chocolate and beer tastings, fellowship with friends old and new, and who knows, you just might learn something about our city along the way! Each stop along the Crawl will provide an informative presentation from the roasters, brewers or makers involved in the fare they're serving. The Downtown Canton Coffee Crawl is a great way to get to know coffee better and to learn more from the people who serve and create your favorite beverages downtown. Once each tour group has tasted their fill of delicious coffees and teas, and sampled yummy chocolates, all of the groups will convene at the Canton Brewing Company for a different kind of brewed beverage: BEER! Canton Brewing will be giving a taste of their delectable Carpe Noctem Porter, made with Carpe Diem's coffee beans. Brewery staff will be on hand to describe the brewing process and what goes into making all their great beers. Crawlers are encouraged to stay at the Brewery and enjoy their food and beers on their own at the conclusion of the presentation.
