The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Vintage Canton Thursday, Sept. 16, from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. in downtown Canton. Vintage Canton is a sophisticated downtown gathering, offering distinctive center city charm alongside live music, vibrant art exhibits and, of course, quality local wine, beer and a sampling of food. Canton is a short 30 minute drive from Whispering Pines Bed & Breakfast. Why not also spend the night at Whispering Pines, overlooking beautiful Atwood Lake. We’ll even offer 10% off the price of the room.

Microbrew beers from Great Lakes Brewery, Thirsty Dog Brewery and select specialty beers from World Market will also be available in lieu of the eight wine samples included with event admission.
Guests will also be able to enjoy small tasting plates for a nominal charge from downtown restaurants and Stark County favorites, including 356 Fighter Group, Almost Heaven Ice Cream, Arcadia Grille, Bender’s Tavern, Brownstone Steakhouse, Napoli’s Italian Eatery, Peter Shear’s Downtown, Samantha’s Downtown Restaurant, Sheri’s Sweets & Cafe and Thorpe’s Market Avenue Grille.
Attendees will enjoy the fine wines, fine foods and fine friends to the rhythm of live blues. Mostly Blues Band with Mike Lenz will perform from 4:30 to 7 p.m., when Jeff Poulos Blues Revue will take over and finish out the evening at 9:30 p.m.
