Each April, Genoa honors its place in state history and the West as the oldest permanent settlement in Nevada and the home to the oldest thirst parlor. The festival kicks off with an opening concert on Friday evening at the Genoa Town Hall. Saturday bustles with fun for the entire family, including Native American demonstrations, music and entertainment, animal demonstrations, Chautauqua performances and food. There is another concert on Saturday evening and the event winds up with the Cowboy Church on Sunday morning.
Daytime events are free and the evening concerts are ticketed.
