About the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls is a multi-day celebration of the enshrinement of the newest Hall of Fame Class held each year in Canton. The 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week, which culminates with the Enshrinement Ceremony and Hall of Fame Game, features 24 official events over two-plus weeks, enjoyed by 700,000 spectators.
Two major events complementing the Enshrinement Ceremony and Hall of Fame Game are the Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Ceremony (Friday) and the Enshrinees' Roundtable Luncheon (Sunday). It is at the Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Dinner where each member of the Class of 2017 will be presented his gold Pro Football Hall of Fame Jacket. At the Enshrinees' Roundtable Luncheon, guests will enjoy a seated lunch with the Class of 2017 and then see the members take center stage to share memories of the game and their personal feelings about being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Typically 80-plus returning Hall of Fame members travel to Canton each year to be a part of the Enshrinement Ceremony and weekend events. Nowhere else are fans able to see and interact with as many Hall of Famers in one place at one time as in Canton during the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week.
