With thousands of visitors expected to attend the Geneva Arts Fair this weekend, the Geneva Police Department announced a section of South Third Street will be closed during the festival.
The Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 28-29 in downtown Geneva. To accommodate the event, parking on Third Street from James to South streets will be prohibited after 4 p.m. Friday, July 27. Starting at 5 p.m. that night, the same stretch of Third Street will be closed to traffic in both directions so artists can set up their tents.
“No Parking” signage will be posted during the morning July 27 to notify downtown visitors of the festival restrictions. If vehicles remain on South Third Street after 4 p.m., the Police Department will have them towed from the downtown.
The primary Arts Fair detour route is Second Street, but traffic on the cross streets of Third Street will remain open throughout the festival.
South Third Street is expected to reopen to motorists by 8:30 p.m. July 29.
