Geneva Grape Jamboree

Ohio's many small town festivals are part of what gives the state it's character. When the festival is in the heart of Ohio's Lake Erie wine country and celebrates the grape, well then it becomes a must-see.

Geneva Ohio's annual Grape Jamboree is held the last weekend in September. This year the dates are September 27 and 28. Events include two parades (Saturday at 130pm and Sunday at 2pm), a craft and antiques fair, grape and wine tastings, a myriad of grape products (try the grape pie; it's delicious), and live entertainment.

Geneva is located about hour's drive east of downtown Cleveland, two miles south of I-90. The festival is open Saturday from 10am to 830pm and on Sunday from noon to 915pm. Admission is free.
