Summer doesn't get any SWEDER THAN THIS!

This six-day festival dates back to 1949. Sponsored by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, it originally began as an event to promote and build business for Geneva at a time, post-WWII, when the economy was booming and Americans were ready to satisfy their consumer appetites. Today, nearly every member of the Geneva community participates in some way, either as a volunteer or participant in the festivities.

We hope everyone had a SWEDE time at Swedish Days 2022! Thank you for participating. See you in 2023!

Held the last week in June, Geneva Swedish Days celebrates the heritage of Swedish immigrants who settled in the area. A Swedish smorgasbord and rosemaling show are hosted by the local church community, and traditional old world costumes are worn. Arts and crafts exhibits, a music competition, a carnival, a Kids’ Day, a flea market, nightly entertainment on the Courthouse lawn, and a parade are part of the festivities. Merchants host special sales and in-store events, as well as sponsoring main festival programs and donating in-kind services. Twenty-one food stands throughout the downtown area tempt visitors with Swedish and American menus. The 2019 festival was the 70th anniversary of Swedish Days.
