2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Events Postponed Due to COVID

CANTON, OH (June 25, 2020) -  Due to a number of significant factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart that the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce announces the postponement of all Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival including Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls events scheduled for July 26-Aug. 9, 2020, until 2021.

After exploring multiple options, and in tandem with the Pro Football Hall of Fame, event organizers collectively did not feel it was possible to mitigate the magnitude of the logistical challenges required to successfully produce the events, while adhering to the guidelines mandated by the State of Ohio as well as public health and safety officials.

“While postponing these events is deeply disappointing for everyone involved, ultimately the health and safety of the attendees and participants, vendors, sponsors, entertainment, staff, volunteers and event partners must come first,” said Denny Saunier, president and CEO of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce. “The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival has been a Canton tradition for over 50 years, and we look forward to hosting a phenomenal celebration in 2021!”

Additional information for 2020 event ticket holders will be available soon.
