Genoa July 4th 2020 Events are Canceled

Genoa 4th of July

The Friends of Genoa, the Genoa Volunteer Fire Dept. and the Town of Genoa sincerely regret having to cancel the July 4th Americana Celebrations. But with the uncertainty surrounding the recent national COVID-19 health crisis, we feel caution is a necessary health safety measure that cannot be tossed hastily aside without thorough research and due diligence by our community.

We are already planning the 2021 Genoa Americana July 4th Celebration to be a spectacular affair that will, we hope, make up for this year’s missed event.

A ReOpening Message from Nevada Museum of Art, Reno

We are pleased to announce the start of a phased reopening of the Nevada Museum of Art this week, keeping the health and safety of our guests and employees the highest priority. This phased approach includes a FREE Community Day on Saturday, June 20, courtesy of the Estelle J. Kelsey Foundation. Continue reading
