Canton Downtown Celebration
Classic Car Show
Held in July or August, the Canton Chamber, in conjunction with member business Canton Auto Supply, invites all of the fancy cars of the area to come out and display for the community.
Motorcycle Fall Foliage Tour
The Canton Area Chamber works with the Canton Lions Club to provide a full experience of the friendly town of Canton during the Fall Foliage Tour of the beautiful mountains of the area. For all the details: www.tourarmeniapa.org
Canton Chamber sponsors and staffs the annual community Halloween Parade. The costume and float judging gives the children and other civic groups a chance to shine and the parade puts them in front of the community. This event is a tradition that began over 80 years ago!
Small Business Saturday & Light Night
Canton Chamber brings Santa to town on the day after Thanksgiving to light up the Christmas Tree and street decorations. With wagon rides, caroling, crafts, and (of course) Santa, Light Night brings out the community to kick off the holiday season in small town style. The following Saturday is Small Business Saturday.
The Canton Chamber provides a free movie at the Rialto Theater in conjunction with special discounts, promotions, and activities around town by the local businesses. This event is a great reason to come to town and support your local retailers.
One of the Canton Chamber's main fundraisers is the Christmas raffle. With more than 50 prizes donated from local businesses, the ticket purchases go to help fund the programs, events, and promotions listed above. The prizes range from great stocking stuffers to valuable services and even cash. Make sure to ask a chamber member in November how to buy tickets. Drawing is typically mid-December.
Mildred Burk Scholarship
The Chamber sponsors the Mildred Burk Scholarship each year. Past records indicate that this scholarship was first awarded in 1999.
The scholarship is given to a graduating Senior from Canton Area High School who will major in Business. This is a $500 scholarship.
