The event will offer football fans the chance to get up close with 100 Hall of Famers, including Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw, Barry Sanders, Lynn Swann, Marshall Faulk, Frank Gifford and Franco Harris.
The Fan Fest will include a variety of interactive experiences. Tickets can be purchased at profootballhof.com/fanfest, by calling 1-844-FAN-FEST or at Ohio Discount Drug Mart locations.
There will be four shows over the two-day event -- each day will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 to 9 p.m.
"As a Pro Football Hall of Famer, I realize more than ever how much I owe to the fans who gave me so much support as a player," said Bradshaw, who was inducted in Canton in 1989. "I always receive such a warm reception from fans, and this Fan Fest is a great chance to say thanks to the Hall of Fame fans of the game."
