Venetian Festival Features the Wonder Lake Water Ski Show

Events near McHenry homesThe annual Venetian Festival on Lake Geneva kicks off today and lasts through Sunday, Aug. 23! You can join in on the fun at Flat Iron, Seminary or Library parks in Wisconsin.

We are excited that the water ski show will be featuring the Wonder Lake Water Ski Show! Our very own CEO, Roger Gerstad, holds The Wonder Lake Water Ski Show near and dear to his heart, as he used to be the team’s boat driver and continues to be an avid supporter and sponsor.

There is always so much for everyone to participate in and enjoy at the Venetian Festival. While you’re there, you’ll have the chance to be adventurous on the carnival rides, discover new handmade items at the craft fair, listen to musical entertainment and enjoy the festival’s traditional lighted boat parade followed by a firework display high above Lake Geneva. You can also dig in to the local cuisine like the brat stand and, if you get thirsty, visit the beer tent!

Entertainment guests this year include Bella Cain on opening night, with Cherry Pie performing Thursday on retro night and The Love Monkeys on Friday night. On Saturday and Sunday, entertainment will take place all day, beginning at noon with the Fresh Hops Band and The Acoustic Generation to follow, as well as the Too White Crew. On Sunday, The Geneva House of Music and Christopher’s Project will perform.

You can catch the entertainment every day until midnight.
