Jackson-Belden Music Fest & Fireworks FAQ

The 2016 Balloon Classic/Jackson-Belden Music Fest will take place on Friday, July 29, 30, & 31.  There will be dozens of food and beverage vendors, musical entertainment, mobile tours, and children’s activities at both the Balloon Classic and Jackson-Belden Music Fest areas. The Canton Regional and Jackson-Belden Chambers of Commerce continue to collaborate to create a fantastic event with the Music Fest under the umbrella of the Enshrinement Festival!

Colorful hot air balloons flew the friendly skies of Stark County!  Each year there is a full field of 60+ hot air balloons! 

Thank you to our partners at the Jackson-Belden Chamber of Commerce for the fantastic FIREWORKS extravaganza that will take place on Saturday evening.
