With a large crowd 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 Arts Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 24-25 in downtown Geneva. To accommodate the event, Third Street from James to South streets will be closed to traffic in both directions starting at 4 p.m. Friday, July 23 to allow artists to set up their tents. Parking also will be prohibited on that same stretch of Third Street
“No Parking” signage will be posted during the morning July 23 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 be reopened to motorists by 8:30 p.m. July 25.
