Downtown Canton has been in the midst of an arts explosion over the past 10 years. With numerous art galleries, artist studios and over 35 new pieces of public art, the Canton Arts District is a happening place to be! Fabulous restaurants, bars and shops all complement this landscape. The majestic and historic Canton Palace Theatre is also located within the Canton Arts District and offers a vast array of entertainment throughout the year.

The District’s monthly First Friday celebration attracts thousands of guests of all ages. First Friday is a monthly party in the downtown Canton Arts District featuring live music, performance and visual arts events and always a few surprises. First Friday happens every month – rain or shine – year ’round!
