Events in Canton

From the world-famous First Monday Trade Days to a hot air balloon festival and a vibrant Christmas parade, there are many events in Canton to enjoy. Although Canton’s massive outdoor market is its most notable event, the town’s other festivals are not to be overlooked. Take in all the festivities at the Tailwind Regional Balloon Festival, attempt to beat a personal record at the Balloon Half Marathon & 10K, and celebrate the birth of our nation in style at Canton’s Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks Show.

No matter which of Canton’s events and festivals you attend, you’ll have a time to remember. Check out the list below to see what’s going on in Canton throughout the year.


January – December

First Monday Trade Days
Head to Canton the weekend before the first Monday of every month for the greatest market of them all. What started as a flea market more than 150 years ago has evolved into a sprawling outdoor marketplace where you’ll find antiques, home decorations, flowers, art, and just about anything else you can imagine. Browse the stalls and chat with the vendors, munch on a funnel cake or some homemade ice cream, and soak it all on. At the end of the day, you’ll leave with a few treasures that you wouldn’t have found anywhere else.

May

Tailwind Regional Balloon Festival
The majestic sight of colorful hot air balloons floating in the wide-open skies above Canton is a captivating sight, yet that’s only one of several reasons to check this mid-May festival out. Not only is there a 5K Glow Run, a car show, and a battle of the bands, there’s also a laser tag arena, a kid’s fun zone, and all sorts of other things to see and do. Held for two days on the west side of the First Monday grounds, this annual event is one you can’t afford to miss.
