From June 15-17, 2017, the festival will be in full swing. Families will definitely want to check out the carnival games and rides for summer thrills–plus the two stages packed with live entertainment, a car show crafts and so much more. New for this year, the fair hosts a mini food festival that will feature a Food Truck Rally and “Taste of Liberty Fest.” The fair’s fare includes a variety of food from local restaurants and eateries along with beer, and other adult beverages, June 16-17. On Thursday, the fair turns down the noise and sets their Therapeutic Family on rounds so that kids on the autism spectrum can enjoy the fun in a more sensory-friendly environment. On Friday, special guests Captain Barnacles and Kwazii Kitten from the Octonauts visit for a meet-and greet with fans. On Saturday morning, the festival hosts the 5k and 10k Liberty Run, which also features a 1-mile route for those looking for something smaller. And on Saturday night, kiss the fair goodbye with the spectacular fireworks display that is sure to be a hit with the kids. Different events may cost money (including the carnival rides), but entry to the fair is free, as well as some events. Times vary, and you can check the full event schedule online. Come out to Heritage Park and join in on the fun. Get even more details on this year’s Canton Liberty Festival in the Metro Parent calendar.
