The Geneva Arts Fair was voted the sixth best arts festival in the country, according to ArtFair Calendar, the No. 1 juried art fair listings website nationwide.
The site's reader survey mentioned the annual summer fair is located in Geneva's beautiful historic downtown and just steps away from the Metra train station, which provides easy access for art aficionados both near and far. ArtFair readers also rated Geneva for hosting the fourth best small town art fair in the United States.
The Geneva Arts Fair has "high quality art exhibitors, an impressive selection of art mediums and styles, and an awesome location in downtown with many restaurants/cafes/coffee shops in the area," the survey stated in Geneva's nomination. "Artists are willing to discuss (their work), and some are working on new pieces, so you can get to know them and watch their magic come to life!"
One additional comment noted Geneva's event provides "unique artists and great small town fun."
ArtFair's seventh annual survey had Geneva competing with much bigger cities, including Chicago which took the top spot for the Old Town Art Fair.
The Geneva Arts fair is sponsored by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce. The 2019 festival is scheduled to be held Saturday and Sunday, July 27-28 along Third Street in downtown Geneva.
