Canton First Friday

First Friday is a monthly party in the downtown Canton Arts District in Canton, Ohio, featuring themed music, performance and visual arts events and always a few surprises for adults and children.

It is primarily a self-guided tour of local art galleries, studios, stores and restaurants. First Friday begins with a First Stop at the Canton Museum of Art @ 5:30, followed by the full-out event downtown from 6-10 p.m. Rain or shine. First Friday happens every month – year ’round!

Canton First Friday is presented by the Downtown Canton Special Improvement District and ArtsInStark.

Chalk the Walk is one of our most popular First Fridays and will be celebrated at July's event!
