2017 Patio Parties Summer Concert Series at the North Canton Public Library

Later this month, the North Canton Public Library will host its second annual Patio Parties series of concerts on the Little Art Gallery patio. The Patio Parties will begin at 12 p.m. and again at 5 p.m. on Fridays, July 21 and July 28. Light refreshments will be provided and attendees are welcome to bring a picnic lunch or dinner. The music will be friendly to all ages.

The reaction to the series, introduced in 2016, was extremely positive. “Based on the feedback about the last year’s Patio Parties, we knew we wanted to bring live music to downtown North Canton again this year,” explained Christina Weyrick, community relations manager for the library. “Several attendees asked if we might consider a 5 p.m. concert so those who work outside the city could attend, and we are excited to have added two 5 p.m. shows in addition to two 12 p.m. concerts this year,” she added.

The 2017 Lineup:

July 21 at noon – All Requests, All Hour with Dustin Allen

Dustin is a singer/songwriter from Ohio and front man of Cleveland-based rock band Hope for the Hollow.
