There are over 300 businesses in the Canton DDA District along Ford Road. It’s like an outdoor mall with retail shopping, department stores, health and other professional services, financial institutions, auto supplies and services, a variety of restaurants, sports and entertainment venues, and hotels. Canton's Ford Road has an established way-finding system with color-coded street light banners for each block along the three mile stretch of the Downtown Development Authority district. New for this year, the color-coded blocks will be celebrated each week of the jazz series with chance to win a prize when you come dressed in the color of the week and various specials will also be offered.

And every week, while supplies last, there will be a commemorative gift for the first 25 people who turn in receipts for a minimum of $25 from a Canton merchant. As always, this event is FREE to the public. 

Each concert begins promptly at 7:00 p.m., but come early to start the night off with dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in the local area or grab some Jazzy Carryout to enjoy during the show.
