Voted one of the best festivals by 2012 Kane County Chronicle's Best of the Fox Reader's Choice Awards, this festival is set in downtown Geneva and is hosted by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce with support from the city.
Our Flavor Fare, full of international and seasonal cuisine prepared by Geneva restaurateurs paired with a diverse selection of wines, will be the centerpiece of this year's celebration. Festival goers can sample excellent food and wine, while enjoying live local and Chicago area entertainment at our giant outdoor tent at State and Fourth streets. Take in new restaurants, new menus, and a whole new culinary experience in 2012.
Food and decorating demonstrations will take place at Fourth and James streets on the side of Geneva's old courthouse.
Stroll down James and Third streets to discover business booths, a flower market, arts and crafts show, carriage and trolley rides.
