Red Hat Day in Genoa


Red Hat Society Chapters from across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin are coming to downtown Genoa this Friday, April 27th for a day of fun, dining and shopping from 9:30am through 3pm. Come early for breakfast on your own at Genoa Cafe. Stop by the library to get your welcome bag, make a sign to carry in the parade, and some surprises. Then it’s on to the shops! Enjoy a day of fun in Genoa from great food and shopping to gentlemen with white gloves to assist you!

Genoa is located at the intersection of Rts. 72 and 23, an easy drive from anywhere in northern Illinois or southern Wisconsin. This will be Genoa’s 5th Annual Red Hat Day and they’ve put together a full schedule of events for the day with their own brand of fun.
