Inaugural West Main Arts Festival Welcomes Fine Artists, Musicians, and Buskers to the Downtown Canton Historic Corridor, Saturday, March 2

CANTON, GA (Jan. 23, 2024) – This spring, art gallery Menagerie on Main hosts the first-ever West Main Arts Festival along West Main Street in Downtown Canton. The connection point between the award-winning Mill on Etowah and charming Downtown Canton, the West Main corridor will recognize cultural and fine arts in this day long celebration where visitors will discover a fine arts market featuring some of the North Georgia region’s best creatives. While browsing, guests can also enjoy live music on two stages as well as be amazed by buskers including a fire thrower and juggler. Festival foods and family fun top off the day. 

“Bringing back an annual celebration of cultural arts to this area is so exciting,” says Menagerie on Main gallery owner Jamie Foreman. “No event like this exists in Cherokee County, and we are looking forward reveling in the arts for the day all along West Main Street! We couldn’t hold this one-of-a-kind festival without other art supporters including the Canton Cultural Arts Commission and Explore Canton, Enjoy Cherokee, Masterpiece Framer, and Atlanta Art Solutions as well as our other generous sponsors.”
