Special Events


The Akron RubberDucks are dedicated to the Akron community, and find it imperative to make our facility available to our fans and neighbors alike.

Canal Park is the perfect place to hold your next corporate outing or meeting, family reunion, holiday party, birthday celebration, and much more! With our climate controled facilities available year-round, we off the fun atmosphere of baseball no matter what the season.

Our spaces can accommodate smaller, more intimate groups of 10, to larger scale events upwards of 75 people. Whether you're looking for a fun and casual feel, complete with ballpark fare, or a more upscale setting with the most current trends from the culinary world, we have the bases covered.

Want to add entertainment to your special day? The RubberDucks work with countless vendors from acoustic trios and barbershop quartets, to balloon artists and stitlt walkers, and everything in between.

Take your event outside of the conference room or the standard banquet space. Host your event at Canal Park and make it a home run!

Movie Nights at Canal Park


With the addition of our HD video board in 2013, the Akron RubberDucks introduced two nights where fans could enjoy a movie under the stars! These movie nights were on a non-game day when the team was on the road, and featured a great night of family fun at the ballpark! The RubberDucks will again host these events during the 2018 season, and proceeds will benefit charity. Dates, movies and benefiting charities for the 2018 season will be announced at a later date.
