2021 GENESEO MUSIC FEST SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

2021 Geneseo Music Fest Schedule

The Geneseo Chamber of Commerce announced that the Geneseo Music Festival is returning for its 53rd season.

The festival was canceled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

The festival is taking place on Father’s Day Weekend - Friday, June 18th 2021 - Sunday, June 20th, 2021. There will be live music, craft vendors, food trucks, tractor displays and more!

The 2021 Geneseo Music Fest will feature its classic attractions, such as the Music Fest Art & Craft Fair, Music Fest Queen Pageant, Summertime Cookouts at the City Park and will feature live music acts from both Geneseo and the surrounding region. Food trucks will be set up at the City Park during the event, offering selections ranging from barbeque to lemon shake-ups to classic carnival food fare.

New attractions will be featured as well, such as the Presidential Memorabilia Display featuring Historian Dr. Larry Cook, and an outdoor movie. Live music can be enjoyed across Geneseo rather than only at the City Park in the evening. This change is being done to support local bars and restaurants who endured rough economic conditions during the COVID-19 mitigations in Illinois.
