Canton, Ohio – Quonset Hut is pleased to host a Grand Opening for our new Community Event Space on Saturday, March 25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a Ribbon Cutting at 12 p.m.
“Quonset Hut has always been a place where people gather and share ideas,” notes Quonset Hut Store Manager Megan Traynor. “Our new Community Event Space will be a place where these ideas can take shape.”
The new Community Event Space is thanks in part to a Visit Canton Recovery and Destination Development Grant for a Community Space Project to renovate a previously vacant and unused portion of our building at 3775 Cleveland Avenue NW in Canton.
“As Stark County continues to grow as a destination, we are thrilled to have a new multi-purpose event venue space opening at Quonset Hut,” shares Allyson Bussey, Visit Canton President & CEO. “While Quonset Hut is already considered a destination by many, the vision of the leadership to grow their business footprint, will allow national and community organizations the opportunity to host new special events and expos within the space. Visit Canton was able to support this project through the Destination Enhancement Grant program and is now looking forward to continuing to support through promotion and free event services to organizations hosting their events in the space.”
Quonset Hut also extends our appreciation to Hartman Custom Construction, who completed the renovations with care, quality, and speed.
“We can’t wait to unveil the new space and begin hosting more events that will serve our community,” says Quonset Hut co-owner Matt Hisrich. “The new space will be dedicated to Mark and Robin Kratzer, who shared a vision for what this building could mean for Quonset Hut and for the entire region, and who invested heavily with their time, talents, and resources into making that dream a reality.”

About Quonset Hut: The Quonset Hut began as a hippie boutique that specialized in clothing, jewelry, and smokers needs. We branched out into the music business with albums for only $3.99! As technology changed, we shifted from vinyl to 8-tracks to cassettes to CDs. Today, vinyl is back and we couldn't be happier to carry a huge selection of records. Quonset Hut expanded further to offer greeting cards that make Hallmark blush, jewelry (both for the pierced and non-pierced), darts, disc golf, skateboards, metaphysical items, tie-dye clothing, incense, and other good smelly stuff, and, of course, smoke shop items and adult toys (must be 18+)! In 2019, we moved to our new location at 3775 Cleveland Avenue NW, just down the street from our former location. Stop by today to pay us a visit and remember…Tell a Friend!
