The City of Geneva and its neighboring communities are home to an abundance of top-notch cultural venues and activities, including events throughout the year.

The downtown art galleries, as well as the active Cultural Arts Commission combine their forces to make Geneva and the greater Fox Valley area a worthy destination for those who enjoy the visual and performing arts. Geneva’s hometown theater, Playhouse 38, showcases talent in an intimate arena.

The 79-seat Steel Beam Theatre, located in St. Charles, has musicals, plays, improvisational comedy and children’s theater.

The Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin provides the western Chicago suburbs with a stellar line-up of entertainers each season. The center features a 1,200-seat theater that hosts the Elgin Symphony Orchestra and has attracted a number of big name performers throughout the years.
