IT"S MORE THAN JUST A FESTIVAL For The Good of Many

2022 celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Lake Geneva Jaycees Venetian Festival. The five-day Festival runs from August 17th-21st and takes place at Flat Iron, Library, and Seminary Parks in picturesque downtown Lake Geneva.

Venetian Festival features a weekend of great family entertainment including a Craft Fair, Carnival, Water ski show, Traditional festival food and a beer tent featuring live music. This is all capped off on Sunday with a traditional Venetian Style lighted boat parade followed by the area’s largest fireworks display over Geneva Lake.

The Lake Geneva Jaycees Annual Venetian Festival was founded in 1962. For over a half century, Venetian Festival has been the banner event for the Lake Geneva Jaycees Chapter. It represents the largest revenue generator for the club. The net profits all go back into the local community and organizations. As Venetian Festival has grown over the years, so have the donations from the Jaycees.
