Genoa Western Heritage Days
The way we see it, if you’re going to spend three days enjoying cowboy poetry, authentic western music, Chautauqua actors portraying Legendary Nevadans, American Indian demonstrations, Dutch oven cooking, and other family fun, Nevada’s oldest permanent settlement ain’t a bad place to do it. Great food, charming accommodations, and proximity to Nevada’s Oldest ‘Thirst Parlor” sweeten the deal even more and this three-day festivity cherished by history buffs and live music lovers alike.
Each April, hundreds of visitors and locals alike descend upon Carson Valley, where the historic town of Genoa devotes an entire weekend to honoring Nevada’s place in the legacy of the American West with the Genoa Western Heritage Days Celebration. This beloved Nevada event kicks off a weekend of fun at the Genoa Town Hall, with live performances from some of the most celebrated western artists in the nation. On Saturday and Sunday, attendees can hit Genoa’s historic streets for American Indian demonstrations, more live western music, cowboy poetry readings, American Indian horsemanship demonstrations, Chautauqua actors portraying some of Nevada’s most legendary historical figures, historic tours, an impressive array western goods and food vendors, and more.
