On September 20, 2016 the Bicentennial Committee held its first meeting beginning the process of planning for the big celebration.

Our town was incorporated on February 5, 1821 and each year starting on February 5, 2017, there will be a celebration commemorating the day and counting down to the big party which will occur in the Summer of 2021.

The Summer celebration in 2021 will be a long weekend featuring FREE Admission for those who love the Town of Canton to events like the Parade, Entertainment, Craft Fair with Food Vendors, Community Booths, Historical Displays and Exhibits.
