As I walked in the door with an armful of pizza from Baja West Coast Kitchen, I was greeted with some confusion. “I thought we were reviewing a taco place?” It’s a fair question. The fast-casual restaurant formerly known as Baja Pizza Fish is either a pizza place with decent tacos or a taco place with excellent pizza.
When someone mentions grabbing dinner in downtown Canton, my first suggestion is usually George’s Lounge. The Canton mainstay dates back to 1959 and is the second-oldest continually operating bar in downtown Canton. Its current iteration in the downtown Arts District is known for its inexpensive drinks and uniquely delicious bar food.
Chances are, someone you love is struggling with mental health issues. About 1 in 5 Americans will experience mental illness in a given year, and more than 50 percent of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lives, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Whether you’re in it for the food, the crafts or just here for the fireworks, there’s lots to love about a festival. Luckily for us, Stark County offers plenty of ways to get outside and enjoy local events, from the big gatherings to quirky small-town affairs. Here’s a look at five festivals worth a visit this summer.

It’s probably a good thing that Shy Cellars is so far out of my way. The intimate Strasburg eatery is nearly perfect with delicious food, wonderful service and possibly the best dessert I’ve ever eaten. If it wasn’t an hour from home, I could see myself spending way too much money way too often.
Pittsburgh is a roughly two-hour, 100-mile journey from Stark County. The city—which sits at the intersection of the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela rivers and boasts more than 440 bridges—is well worth the drive.
Jessica Holbrook taste-tests French onion soup, spicy calamari, the lobster ravioli appetizer, ahi tuna, 6 oz. angus reserve filet mignon with blue cheese, bacon and brandy, red pepper risotto, Brussels sprouts, cheesecake and six-layer chocolate cake at The Bistro of Green.
For more than a century, Ferraro’s Family Restaurant & Bakery has given customers plenty of ways to satisfy a sweet tooth. The old school Stark County staple is open 24/7. And whether you’re stopping by for a hearty breakfast, a casual dinner or a late-night snack, you can grab a donut or creamstick for the road.
