Friday, August 5th
On Friday the official Enshrinement Week events are headquartered in downtown Canton including the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Fashion Show Luncheon and the Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Dinner inside the Canton Memorial Civic Center.
Get your photo with the Canton sign in Centennial Plaza, visit the birthplace of the NFL, marked by a piece of The Eleven, and continue on to see other public art and historic sites throughout the city. Enjoy a local brew or libation as you sightsee in downtown Canton. Most of the downtown is part of a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) allowing visitors to stroll around with a drink in hand, so long as it's in the official cup provided when purchasing beverages at local restaurants and bars within the DORA.
Plus, every first Friday of the month is ArtsinStark's First Friday in the downtown Canton Arts District, a celebration of art, music, local businesses, and restaurants. If you plan to eat dinner downtown during Enshrinement week, especially Friday, reservations are highly recommended.
