Exciting changes are planned for the 111th Canton Labor Day Festival—the oldest celebration of its kind in the south. This year on Sunday September 3rd and September 4th all of the festivities will be held at Sorrells Street Park in downtown Canton. With the help of a professional production team, we will host two days of FREE music featuring fifteen bands from across the region. Food trucks, a Buy Haywood Farmers Market, Papertown Kids Village, Car Show, Gospel Show, Parade, and Handmade Craft Expo will round out the total guest experience. We have launched an ambitious marketing strategy that will employ various mediums in strategic markets such as Western North Carolina, North Georgia, tri-cities Tennessee and upstate South Carolina. Our target demographic is the 15-44 age group and we expect to draw an audience of 20,000 over the course of the two days.
