The 18th annual Canton Main Street Autumn Festival is back!!

October 11 & 12, 2019 will be a great 2 day event celebrating the blessings of living in a small town and enjoying a traditional street festival with friends and family!

This year we celebrate the historical history and pride we have for our beloved city. We will have a variety of great food, live music, Miss Main Street Pageant, a sanctioned BBQ contest, great vendors, fun kids events, games and all on our beautiful downtown square. Enjoy several events in the new Pocket Park named, Canton Town Square Park, along with the scarecrow decorating contest. We will crown our Miss Main Street and find out who is the best BBQ talent at our sanctioned BBQ contest. Of course we will have great merchandise & food vendors, silent auction, and so much more. 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 friends, and have fun right here in Downtown Canton Tx. With the recent unveiling of the new strategic plan for downtown Canton, we are working hard on phase 1 of the plan and using the proceeds from the festival to help us accomplish our goals.  Come out and help us redevelop downtown Canton and lets be the place for locals and the envy of all other small towns.  

Schedule of Events for 2019 festival will be listed soon.
