Beginning in April, the Canton Lions Club will host “Canton after 5:00” at the Trolio Hotel on the square.  The second Tuesday of each month, April, May, June and August, the Lions Club will host a guest presenter along with light refreshments beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Our downtown merchants will offer extended hours and specials for your shopping enjoyment.

The series will feature;

  • April 9 - David Rich, owner of Rich Grain Distillery.  Mr. Rich will showcase signature cocktails and a tasting of his locally distilled bourbons.  Cost $15

  • May 14 - Sherry LaCour and Wanda Baldwin will present butterfly gardening.  Those attending will have the opportunity to engage in a plant swap. Cost $10

  • June 11 - The program is “Learning to be Smarter with Social Media”.  Braley Reed, the Public Information Officer of the Canton Library, will be on hand to teach our group some neat tricks with using Facebook and Twitter to advance our businesses, connect with friends and family, sell unwanted items, and enhance our lives while enabling security features to keep us safe. Also, enjoy some wine and light hors d'oeuvres. Cost $10

  • August 13 - Erin Noble and Jane Foster will kick-off football season with a tailgate setting for refreshments.  Tailgating recipes will be shared with those attending. Cost $10

Tickets for these events may be purchased by calling the Canton Tourism office (601-859-1307), at, or at the door.  Tickets are $15 for the first event and $10 for the remaining features with all profits going toward the Lions Club cleanup projects around town.  

The Lions of Canton appreciate the support and help of the Canton Tourism Office, Johnny Stewart and local merchants to make these events possible.  We sincerely hope our community will come and experience our downtown square through a social setting designed purely for the fun of being together with neighbors and friends.
