I have been involved with the Downtown Canton Arts District for years. And, I've seen the ebbs and flows, and stops and starts of new galleries and studios, restaurants and other businesses. And you know what? It's a GREAT work in progress, always evolving, always improving, offering a walkable way to enjoy great dining (of the non-chain nature) and fun... More

There are some don't miss places in the Canton Arts District. If you're there Wednesday-Saturday 12-5pm, make sure to check out all the local art galleries like Second April, Translations, Lynda Tuttle's, The Hub, The Joseph Saxton and Journey Art Gallery. All of these places are so great for shopping for unique gifts. In the evenings, you can enjoy fine... More

Not much to say, except avoid it, the crime rate is too high, and the art is basic at an expensive price. The restaurants are good though, just park in a lighted area, and be watchful.

Three excellent venues surround the district currently (George's Bar - now serving awesome food and live music, The Auricle - which has no food but the occasional national music act, and Buzzbin - for local musicians). Love all of the little galleries now peppering the area - and it looks like downtown Canton's time has finally come.

Thriving art galleries , eateries in small downtown area. Worthwhile in good weather. Some very interesting traveling exhibits on display at times, other times mediocre

Always enjoy bringing the family down for all of the fun on First Fridays - sidewalk art, ice sculptures, bands, art shows, good food, etc. But it's also nice to stroll around without the crowds during the week. There always seems to be something new popping up.

It is a non profit and receives no government funding. Their budget is 3 million and all... More

Just going to first Friday every month downtown will provide you with a whole host if options to enjoy. Art, restaurants, stores open and a friendly crowd make it a festive treat,

This address is misleading. The arts district starts at 6th St NW with wonderful galleries and then goes south to 3rd St NW, between Market Ave & McKinley Ave. be sure to check the award winning art at the all the galleries.
