Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival
For the past 48 years, the annual enshrinement of football players, coaches and contributors into the Pro Football Hall of Fame has been celebrated each summer during the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival's 18 diverse events over nearly two weeks, enjoyed by 700,000 people. A year-round collaboration between the professional staffs at the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and a team of 4,200 extraordinary community volunteers make the planning come to life! Numerous events take place in the greater downtown Canton area including the Community Parade and Timken Grand Parade, Concert & Fireworks, First Play, Fashion Show Luncheon, Enshrinees Dinner, and Enshrinees GameDay Roundtable. Other activities include a Balloon Classic, 2-Mile and 5-Mile Races, Ribs Burnoff, Autograph Sessions, Fan Appreciation Parties, Drum Corps International Competition, and NFL/Hall of Fame Game. Some events are ticketed, many are free, and all are guaranteed to be fun during this "One of a Kind Celebration!"
