2020 Genoa Candy Dance Cancelled

July 9, 2020

The Genoa Town Advisory Board Votes 5-0 to cancel the 2020 Candy Dance at the July 8, 2020 Genoa Town Advisory Board Meeting.

Genoa, NV- The Town of Genoa’s chief responsibility is the health and safety of our residents, vendors, staff and sponsors. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the level of service and safety that is required to effectively execute the 2020 Candy Dance. This decision does not come without significant impact to our Town, our heritage and our budget, but it was the right decision to make.

Official Statement from Genoa Town Manager, JT Chevallier:

“COVID-19 has presented us with no other option than to cancel the 2020 Genoa Candy Dance. This event relies on multi-agency permitting and significant investment. The fact remains there are far too many unknowns to be able to properly and safely plan a large-scale event. Additionally, there is no way to predict when restrictions will be lifted to provide the opportunity to produce the event. We will be working with our 2020 Candy Dance vendors to provide refunds or roll their deposits to the 2021 event.

We are all in this together. We refuse to allow the cancellation to extinguish our passion and dedication to ensuring Candy Dance 2021 is one for the record books.

I want to sincerely thank all of our residents, businesses, vendors and community for their ongoing support for the Town of Genoa.”
