A number of special events occur throughout the year in Genoa, but none are more significant than the annual Genoa Candy Dance Arts & Crafts Faire. The original Genoa Candy Dance and Dinner fundraiser in 1919 were held to pay for street lights for Genoa. After the lights were purchased, it became necessary to continue the fundraising to cover the cost of the electricity, and in 1974 the Arts & Crafts Faire was added to the event. The Genoa Candy Dance tradition continues to support the Town of Genoa today. This event, which boasts over 300 arts and crafts, activities, and food vendors, draws thousands of people to Genoa during the two-day event.
