We had a great time at the 17th Annual Canton Autumn Festival this year.

Save the Date for next years festival on October 11 & 12, 2019.

The annual festival is the primary fundraiser for the revitalization and beautification of your downtown Canton. Plus it is a great way to enjoy your community, make friend, and have fun right here in Downtown Canton Tx. 

This year we are celebrating food, arts and music in an old fashion street festival.  For the first time the festival will be a 2 day event that includes live entertainment, kid's games and activities.  We will be celebrating the opening of the new Pocket Park, Canton Main Street Park and get the opportunity to see the unveiling of the new strategic plan for downtown Canton.   We will crown our Miss Main Street from the Main Street Beauty Pageant, enjoy a beautiful art vendors, local auto show with cars, trucks and RVs and our newest event, the Scarecrow Decorating Contest. Great Merchandise & Food Vendors, Silent Auction, and so much more. Come out and help us redevelop Main Street as we Imagine the Possibilities in Downtown Canton.
