4 Reasons to Attend the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend

By Victoria Barnett

There’s a reason thousands of people head to Ohio to be a part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend each year. It’s easily one of the best weekends of the year! The experience is unlike any other, and there’s always plenty to celebrate. So, what’s so special about these four days in Canton? Let’s break it down. Here are four reasons why you need to attend the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend.

Hall of Famers – Everywhere!

To be expected, Hall of Famers are everywhere throughout the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend. You never know who you might run into! While the majority of fans are crossing their fingers and praying they run into a Hall of Famer, we actually have events lined up with them already. We have a couple of parties that feature returning Hall of Famers, who you can meet and take photos with. We also offer a luncheon with the current class, a front line view of the Gold Jacket Walk where returning Hall of Famers make their way to the Enshrinement Stage, and an autograph session with the current class. It’s not every day you can be within close proximity to these football heroes – get your cameras ready!


The Atmosphere

There’s certainly a sense of comradery among football fans during the Pro Football Hall of Fame Weekend. Each year, there seems to be one team’s fan group that is really prevalent throughout the weekend. In 2015, it was Steelers fans. In 2016, it was Packers fans. Whether it’s the team you’re representing, the Hall of Famer you’re supporting or the area you’re from, there’s always something you bond over. During the four days, fans unite and become a dominating force. This makes the atmosphere so spectacular – you sense the pride among each fan group and can feel the excitement around you.


Party, Party, Party

We know how to have a good time at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The parties are a big hit of the weekend – with plenty of food, beer, music and dancing, you’re sure to have a good time. We have two separate parties based on which package you purchase. The atmospheres at both are very similar; the biggest differences are the food and beverages.

Our parties in the Diamond tent feature more up-scale food like sirloin and potatoes whereas our parties in the Gold tent include tailgate-style food like burgers. The Diamond tent also has a premium open bar whereas our Gold tent only has beer and soft drinks. Both feature music and entertainment! This past year, the Diamond tent had a DJ, and the Gold tent had live music from the Redneck Romeos. Also keep in mind, our parties in the Diamond tent feature appearances from returning Hall of Famers.  

Not only are our parties plenty of fun, but they’re a nice escape from the heat and the crowds. You don’t have to stress over where to eat or where to relax – we have it covered for you.


Vacation for All

If you love football and are looking for a family-friendly vacation, this is perfect! Sure, you could go to the beach or the mountains, but why not do something different for a change? The Pro Football Hall of Fame provides plenty of memories that you and your friends and family members will remember for a lifetime. We’ve seen people of all ages, and there’s something for everyone. We’ve had couples celebrate their wedding anniversaries at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We’ve had dads bring their sons for a good bonding weekend. Whether you’re seven years old or seventy years old, a trip to Canton is something you need to experience at least once in your life. There’s nothing quite like it.
