Concert and Fireworks FAQ

When and where will the fireworks be launched?  This awesome fireworks show will originate at 10 p.m. from the Cornerstone Square parking deck on the corner of Walnut and 2nd Street, SE in downtown Canton.  But, come early to enjoy musical entertainment and fun activities for the kids.

Will rain cancel the show?  Fireworks can be shot -- and even enjoyed -- in the rain!  The show will go on as long as conditions are safe for our spectators.

Where is the best viewing area?  This venue offers a huge variety of unobstructed viewing opportunities throughout the greater downtown Canton area.  While viewing within the drop zone is strictly prohibited, spectators can get a fantastic view by sitting right on Tuscarawas Street as well as on Walnut Avenue (north of Tusc).

Where can I park for this event? The Cornerstone Square and the Millennium parking decks will be closed to the public but parking is available in the New Market parking deck at 233 Market Avenue South.  Additionally, there are many open lots and on-street parking spaces in downtown Canton. Come early, and stay late!

What are road closings for Concert & Fireworks?  (This information is tentative at this time and subject to slight adjustment as planning proceeds.) Beginning at 10:00 a.m.: Walnut Avenue from Tuscarawas Street going north to 5th Street will be closed; 5th Street will remain open all evening to vehicular traffic. Beginning at 10:00 a.m.: Intersecting streets including 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, will be closed from Piedmont to Cherry (meters will be bagged accordingly).
