Seasonal Special Happenings

Canton Hops and Harvest Festival

When: Sat., Oct. 12 2019

For several years now, David Lockshin and Mark Puma have talked about bringing a beer festival to Canton. Puma, based in New York, works in music promotion and artist management. Canton's Lockshin owned Fame Beverage Co. in Massillon, a company he sold just over 10 years ago. All that talk will turn into action tonight at the Canton Hops and Harvest Festival, held at the Canton Memorial Civic Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample more than 100 beers from every region of Ohio as well as national and international brews. Food trucks and local restaurants will be on hand as well. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local nonprofit organizations including Wishes Can Happen, the Stark County Hunger Task Force and the Stark County Humane Society. Some of the 50 participating breweries include the Canton Brewing Company, Sierra Nevada, Rhinegeist Brewery, Platform Beer Company and Hoppin' Frog Brewery. Tickets range in price from $15 to $60 and are available online. The event has two sessions — a 1 to 4 p.m. afternoon session and a 6 to 9 p.m. evening one. A VIP ticket allows early entry. (Niesel)
