We've been actively involved with the planning and promotion of the inaugural Draft Day Experience, which will be a celebration of the 2016 NFL Draft right here in Canton! The event will get underway at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28 at the McKinley Grand Hotel downtown. NFL Hall of Famers and alumni are scheduled to attend, including Cleveland Browns legends Don Cockroft and Hanford Dixon. There will be music, great food and drink, a memorabilia auction and more, including analysis of the first round picks by the former NFL players in attendance, moderated by Kenny Roda of WHBC.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Legends Landing, a planned residence for retired NFL players that will be located in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Village. It is hoped that the event itself will be a signal to the NFL that Canton, as the birthplace of the league, would love to one day host the NFL Draft.
Make plans to be a part of history and enjoy a great evening of football and fellowship with fans and former NFL players at the 2016 Draft Day Experience! For ticket information, click the link below.
