Year after year, smiles return to faces at Swedish Days, Geneva’s Midsommar Festival presented by Cadence Health.

As you can see from some of the photos above, the food is great. But it’s also just a great summer festival, with live bands, carnival rides, outdoor sales. All the favorite events return for the 2014 installment, including the parade, Sweden Väst, plus children’s games and events. Also back by popular demand is the Geneva’s Got Talent contest!

Here’s a schedule, for your convenience, but please visit the Geneva Chamber of Commerce website or its information booths at the festival in downtown Geneva if you have questions.
