What’s better together than great live music and food? Genny Fest Music Festival & Food-Truck Frenzy™ — a free music-and-food festival hosted each spring on campus — is named for WGSU’s mascot, Genny (a lovable squirrel — herself named after the affectionate nickname for Geneseo). Featuring live music and food trucks, Genny Fest™ benefits WGSU (and future Genny Fests).
The second Genny Fest Music Festival & Food-Truck Frenzy™ will be 4–7 p.m. Friday, May 3, 2019. Check back for more details (coming soon) — including an announcement about scheduled music performers.
