Vintage Canton – New Date!

Many of you are used to tasting wine and small bites of delicious food in the fall at Vintage Canton! This year, the event will take place on Thursday, May 21, from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. along Central Plaza North in downtown Canton.

This is the first year that Vintage Canton, which has been a September event typically, will be held in May. The date change is largely a result of adjustments to the 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival schedule, including the introduction of the Canton Kickoff Celebration, a three-day event in downtown Canton this September 10, 11, and 12, which will coincide with the first game of the NFL season on that Thursday. Taste of Canton, which is usually held in May, will be on hiatus this year.
Vintage Canton is a sophisticated downtown event, offering center city charm alongside live music, cuisine from local restaurants, and of course, quality wines and craft beers. This year’s Vintage Canton event will feature some of the finest quality wines from area wineries and abroad; hand-picked wine selections from distributors and retailers will also be available. The popular Beer Garden will return with a diverse offering of craft beers.
In addition to wine and craft beer, guests can enjoy small tasting plates for a nominal charge from downtown restaurants and Stark County favorites.

The evening will be set to the musical backdrop and rhythms of local favorite, Yankee Bravo. Tickets for Vintage Canton are $30 if purchased prior to 5:00 p.m. on May 20, and $40 after that time and at the event. Special group-rate pricing is available for groups of 20 or more at $25 per ticket. The ticket price includes eight wine or craft beer tastings, collectable wine glass, and a variety of breads and cheeses. Non-tasting tickets (no wine or beer) are available for $10. Tickets may be purchased online and at the Canton Regional Chamber offices (222 Market Ave. N in downtown Canton). The event is conveniently located at Central Plaza North, on Market Ave. between Tuscarawas St. and Third St. NW. The event will be held rain or shine.

Renee continues a family legacy. The Powell family story has become part of our national history thanks to the perseverance and determination of Renee’s father William Powell who built Clearview Golf Course and opened the course to players of all color in 1948.
