Reserving Jones Park
To hold an event in Jones Park or in the downtown area, you must complete a Special Event Permit Application and submit it to the Mayor's office at least 30 days prior to your event. Please note the section entitled "Insurance" which requires a Certificate of Liability Insurance for certain types of events.
Requests to close streets or public parking lots for an event must be approved by the Canton City Council. This process requires discussion at a Committee meeting and approval at the subsequent Council meeting. You would need to complete the Request for Right of Way Closure form and submit it to the Mayor's office at least 30 days prior to your event.
If you have any questions, please contact the Mayor's office at 309-647-0065.
