Welcome to Chardon, Ohio!

Host to the annual Geauga County Maple Festival as well as being the county seat for Geauga County, Chardon is one of the most dynamic small towns in all of Northeast Ohio. From our charming Main Street shops and restaurants to our beautiful parks and cultural activities, Chardon has something fun to offer everyone.

Holiday Fun in Chardon


‘Tis the season to celebrate the holidays and shop for family and friends. On December 13 merchants on and around the Chardon Square saw record sales during the Square Association’s “Home for the Holidays’which included carriage rides and breakfast with Santa. The fun will continue in January when Chardon Tomorrow hosts its fifth annual WinterFest on the Square January 17. The day begins at 2 pm with carriage rides, sled dog races, ice sculpting and more. The grand finale starts at dusk with the spectacular lighting of the seven-foot fire and ice tower. Check out our youtube video from last year. Thanks to University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center for serving as presenting sponsor again this year.  Interested in volunteering or other sponsorship opportunities?

Shop Chardon, buy local and support the community

Remember to support your local merchants and Shop Chardon First during the holiday season and beyond. The math alone for buying close to home is compelling—for every $100 spent at a locally-owned business, $73 remains in the local economy, and $27 leaves. Compare that to the same $100 spent at a non-locally owned business, where $43 remains in the local economy and $57 leaves. Recent research from Civic Economics indicates that local eateries return nearly 79 percent of revenues to the community, compared to just over 30 percent for chain restaurants.
