Geneva Arts Fair
Downtown Geneva serves as a picturesque backdrop for an eclectic outdoor art gallery drawing more than 120 artists in a host of mediums from around the country.
The Geneva Art Festival, sponsored by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, has drawn acclaim as being one of the top art fairs in the region year after year.
The show runs from 10am to 5pm today in downtown Geneva. Admission is free.
“Kashmir” at the Arcada Theatre
Tickets: $19 – $29
Yes the singer looks and sounds alot like Robert Plant and the band shares the authenticity, appearance and sound of the great Led Zeppelin, but more importantly the band wants to share the energy and the experience that Led Zeppelin created while on tour. The band calls it “The Zone” and they want everyone to share that same electromagnetic experience after leaving a Kashmir show like so many Zep fans did in the past while watching the great Led Zeppelin on stage.
The Arcada is located at 105 E. Main Street in downtown St. Charles.

“The Claudettes” at The Venue
Advance General Admission Terrace $15 (Seat provided)
Advance General Admission Lawn seats $10. Bring Your Own Chair or blanket.
*This is a rain or shine outdoor concert.
The Claudettes fuse Chicago piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk and the sultriness of ’60s soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music.
Johnny Iguana pounds the piano alongside seductive singer Berit Ulseth, bassist/guitarist/singer Zach Verdoorn and drummer Michael Caskey.
Johnny, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band oh my god, is also in the Grammy-nominated groups Chicago Blues: A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band. He has toured/recorded with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and more and played piano on the Chicago Plays the Stones album featuring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Buddy Guy.
