One of the great things about the month of August in Lake Geneva is the annual Venetian Fest. This year the fest will be held August 13-17. If you haven’t experienced a Venetian Fest in Lake Geneva, this is the year to change that.
This fest has been going on over a half a century and is a highlight of the summer in Lake Geneva. The event has been organized and sponsored by the Jaycees since 1952. This annual event features a carnival, craft fair, water ski shows, fireworks, boat parade and multiple musical acts throughout the four day run.
While we could write a blog post on each one of the events, we want to use this post to highlight the fireworks, and the boat parade, and the water ski show.
The water ski show takes place on Sunday, August 17th at 6 pm. The Wonder Lake Ski Team will perform on Geneva Lake and can be viewed from the shoreline at Library Park and The Riviera.
The boat parade will be held on Sunday evening on Geneva Lake right in front of Library Park and The Riviera. This lighted boat parade starts at dusk with the fireworks display immediately following. This year’s theme is for Venetian Fest is “Americana”.

And, of course, after a day of all that fun, who wants to head back home? Make a reservation at Lazy Cloud! And instead of coming up on Friday and Saturday, book your stay for a Sunday and Monday.
