Musician Booking:
We have music all over the city the First Friday of every month. Most venues book their own music acts, but there are a few that ArtsinStark hires for galleries and street corners around town. All are welcome to participate however you must be booked through ArtsinStark in order to play for our crowd. Simply fill out this contact form below and if it is something we think would fit then we will get back to you with a potential date. Musicians are booked in October for the entire following year. In order to be considered you must submit youtube videos of previous performances.

Saturdays in the City

Saturdays in the City celebrate all that’s great about our downtown. This year we join forces with the Downtown Canton Flea for one awesome day. May-October, the third Saturday of each month, visit 4th and Court for a great time to SHOP, EAT, LIVE, and PLAY in our downtown. Want to be a vendor? Here are the applications.
