The Village of Geneseo is kick-starting the month of July with its 35th Summer Festival and Sidewalk Days, hosted by the Geneseo Rotary Club. You can spend two days wandering through downtown and Village Park, stopping to shop at various artisan vendor stations, or grab a bite at one of the local churches or Rotary Impulse Tent. There will also be live, local bands playing all day, including The Barley Mob featuring Tim Bucci on Friday night and The Skycoasters on Saturday night. There's no need to get a babysitter: children can find a bounce house, petting zoo, rock climbing wall, and games. The festival also includes a teddy bear parade, "Summer Fest's Got Talent" competition, and "Party in the Village" with wine and brew tastings.
The festival will take place Friday, July 7, and Saturday, July 8, beginning around 9 a.m. For a full schedule of events, map of the festival, and other general information, visit geneseorotary.com/summerfestival.
