Genoa Candy Dance Volunteers

Genoa Candy Dance Volunteers Since 1919

The funds raised during the Genoa Candy Dance provide a substantial portion of the Town of Genoa’s annual budget. Volunteers make it happen!

With such a big event, there are ample opportunities to get involved. Are you handy in the kitchen? If so, we might just recruit you to join our Candy Makers who spend the months of August and September working away to make the famous candy that is a signature of the event. Do you enjoy interacting with people? Then working in the information booth or as a vendor host might be the right fit for you. And of course, we can't forget our Dinner-Dance, a tradition that dates back to the very first event in 1919! With so much to do we'll be sure to find a way for you to get involved.

If you are interested in volunteering (in any capacity) for this year’s Genoa Candy Dance, please fill out and submit the Volunteer Registration Form. For more information please contact Town Office Staff.

Volunteers Make It Happen

The Genoa Candy Dance runs on "volunteer power." Without volunteers, the Genoa Candy Dance would be like the copper candy kettle above — empty. The Genoa Candy Dance Arts & Crafts Faire and Dinner-Dance event is the success it is today because of our generous volunteers and we encourage you to volunteer to help keep the Genoa Candy Dance going for another hundred years. This page is dedicated to all our hard-working volunteers.

Every year, volunteer candy makers donate hundreds and hundreds of hours to make 4000 pounds of Genoa’s famous homemade candy. The Candy Dance planning committee begins working early in the year to coordinate the many details that ensure a successful event.

We need your help to continue the Candy Dance tradition.
