This year’s Winterfest event, featuring the city’s annual tree lighting, will be reimagined as Holiday Drive North Canton, safely bringing holiday magic to our community.

The North Canton Chamber of Commerce and its partners the City of North Canton, the North Canton Public Library and the North Canton Jaycees have made a commitment to maintaining the wonder of our city’s cherished holiday tradition despite the fact that for the first time in 100 years, the community will not gather in a crowd to watch the lighting of the city’s Christmas Tree.

Holiday Drive North Canton is a drive through event that will extend from 7th Street to Waterside on North Canton’s Main Street. For three consecutive Saturdays, December 5, 12 and 19, Main Street will “light up” with holiday merriment from 5-7 p.m.

Those driving on Main Street will find Santa and Mrs. Claus at the town center, choirs singing carols, characters dressed up throughout, and the businesses on Main Street decorated and lit up as we bring as much joy as we can to the community during this difficult time.

Letters to Santa and donations of Toys for Adopt a Family will be collected by the North Canton Jaycees in the on-street parking spaces in front of City Hall.

The North Canton Public Library will offer special holiday themed Library to Go kits in advance of each Holiday Drive event.
