Genoa Candy Dance

September 29, 2018

The Genoa “Candy Dance” originated in 1919 as an effort to raise money to purchase street lights for the small, but enterprising community of Genoa, Nevada’s first settlement.
The original mission of the Genoa Candy Dance was to bring light to the town streets. Each Candy Dance after the first one in 1919 helped pay for the electricity and upkeep on those lights. Now, Candy Dance and the Arts & Crafts Faire added in the mid 1970s, provides for a lot of the town’s budget which goes to improving the town and maintaining Genoa’s historic buildings.
