Music, Lobsters, Fireworks and Art – who could ask for more fun things to do at Lake Geneva than that?
This weekend is going to be a really fun weekend around Geneva Lake. If you’ve come up to Lake Geneva on vacation or find yourself looking for things to do, here’s a few great options that you’ll enjoy!
Fontana Lobster Boil - Every year on the last weekend in July, the Village of Fontana hosts it’s annual Lobster Boil! Each year the event gets bigger and bigger! Organized by the Bigfoot Lion’s Club, this year marks 29 years serving up this great event! Saturday, July 28th the Lobster Boil takes place at Reid Park on Fontana’s Lakefront. It’s the perfect spot to get a great meal and support the community if you are staying at The Abbey Resort, just across the street! Dinners are served starting at 2:00 pm and run $34 for a lobster dinner and $22 for steak dinner. Last year the Bigfoot Lions served over 2,400 people and this year they are hoping to add another 200 dinners to the event.
Richard Driehaus Birthday Party - Every July well-known philanthropist Richard Driehaus holds his birthday party for his closest friends and fellow philanthropists at his Lake Geneva lakefront estate. It has become an event that many locals look forward to as he has a spectacular fireworks display after dark. Many people stay out later on their boats to watch the display. Others book a late dinner at the Grandview Room at the Geneva Inn for one of the best seats in the house!
Art in the Bay - If you’re looking for great art this weekend, Saturday and Sunday Williams Bay is holding their annual Art in the Bay. You’ll find everything from oil paintings to pottery and glass-work. It’s a great opportunity to meet the artists and see where their inspiration comes from. As a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, art events are something I love sharing about locally! Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. stop by Edgewater Park (On Geneva Street, across from Cafe Calamari) you never know if you’ll find the perfect piece of art for your new lake home.
Music by the Lake - This Sunday, Music by the Lake will be featuring Tom Chapin & Friends! The show is at 4:00 p.m. at George Williams College in Williams Bay. We are taking our boys there and are excited to see the show! If you are there with your family, we’d love to meet you in person! Call or text (262) 745-3738 to connect!
Part of why we love living in Lake Geneva so much is because there are so many fun things to do in Lake Geneva with kids. Whether it’s in Lake Geneva or just a short ride along the lake to Fontana or Williams Bay, all of our surrounding communities are so active in bringing families together. It’s really a great place to live and we’d love to share it with you!
