[ARCHIVED] Celebrate The Start Of Fall With Geneva's Festival Of The Vine

Savor the flavor of Geneva during Festival of the Vine, the autumn harvest celebration.

Initially a celebration of anything grown on a vine, the festival now revolves around food and wine. The event runs Sept. 11-13 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fourth and State streets. Food and wine purchase times vary.

Geneva has over 20 fine restaurants showcased at the “Flavor Fare” along with a variety of wine for purchase. For more than 30 years, restaurants have set up under one huge tent offering three of their favorite signature items. Visitors purchase tickets and buy a “taste” at one of the featured restaurants in the tent.

To accompany your food, unique wines from around the world will be available for purchase. Enjoy versatile local and Chicago-land musical and dance entertainers on the stage throughout the weekend.

Looking for some tips on spicing up an autumn dish? The Harvest Demo Stage, located on James Street, hosts a variety of free demonstrations on Sept. 12 and 13.

Other events during the festival include an arts and crafts show, merchant wine events, business booths, face painting for the kids, complimentary trolley and horse drawn carriage rides plus great shopping in Geneva’s historic downtown.

Festival of the Vine is hosted by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce. A complete schedule of events and hours can be found at the link below.
