Enjoy Geneva's Festival of the Vine this fall

August is a busy month for most. Last minute vacations find a spot on the calendar. School shopping, reluctantly, needs to be done; inevitably there is always that one thing you just can’t find anywhere. And with the warmer and longer days coming to an end, you realize that project list made last May has only gotten longer. Pause for a breath.

Fortunately, this too shall pass.

However, something you don’t want to pass up is next month’s Festival of the Vine held September 6 – 8.

Geneva member restaurants will be creating a culinary display of specialties. I can’t think of a better way to let your taste buds travel around the world. China, Mexico, Italy – flavors of those countries and more will be represented at the 2019 Flavor Fare.

Just steps away from the Flavor Fare on North Fourth Street you can raise your glass, peruse and purchase a variety of reds and whites.

Walk across the street and stroll to Third Street, where crafters are literally wrapped around the old courthouse on Saturday and Sunday. Don’t miss the fall fresh flower market provided by the Geneva ACE Hardware Garden Center.

Adding to the atmosphere of the festival will be complimentary horse-drawn antique carriage rides and trolley rides. Carriage rides will be offered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the trolley will be available Saturday and Sunday to take you between festival events. Hop on board and discover what makes Geneva special.

When you are busy, it is hard to think about the next day, let alone the next month, but looking forward to a Geneva festival might make the next couple of weeks pass just a little easier.

Good food, good wine, good music, good people, good times... good gosh you should try it.

For more information on this festival, including activity times, and other chamber events, please visit www.genevachamber.com or call 630-232-6060. The schedule will be posted later this month.
