Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA)

The North Canton Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) is a limited area of the City where the consumption of alcoholic beverages is permitted outside during certain hours. The DORA focuses on the southern portion of the Main Street Center Zoning District and was designed to support the many community events that take place in that area throughout the year including the Main Street Festival, Market 720, and Winterfest.

The DORA operates daily from noon to 11:00 PM and during special events designated by the Mayor. Drinks must be purchased in designated DORA cups from participating liquor permit holders and may not be brought in.

If you are opening a business or hosting an event in the DORA and are interested in participating please contact the Department of Administration.
