Live From Linden Starts Friday



Trees turning green, birds in the backyard and Linden Street in downtown Geneva opening to pedestrians are all surely signs that Spring has arrived. The 2023 Live From Linden season starts this Friday, April 21st. 

Linden Street will be closed to vehicles starting at 5 pm every Friday and Saturday through Columbus Day weekend. Shops, bars and restaurants will all be open each evening with free live music from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.  

Musical performances will be by solo and duo artists with some bands playing this season as well. While performers come from the Finger Lakes region and as far away as Buffalo, some of the most popular acts are locals. The season kicks off with longtime local favorites Sliksly on April 21st and Jerry Martin on the 22nd. 

This season will feature several highlights. The Linden Wine Series will hold five events this summer, with the first scheduled for June 3rd.  FLXcursions will again be hosting a four-day Riesling international event, with a celebration on Linden June 17th.  The biggest music event of the Linden season will be local favorites the Lipker Sisters, sponsored by C.S. Burrall & Son, on July 29th 

“This year Linden Street will have something for everyone. Free live music, great food, a variety of dining options and lots of chances to enjoy a uniquely urban experience. We hope that locals and tourists alike come down and enjoy everything that downtown Geneva has to offer” says local property owner Dave Linger.  

Kevin Dombrowski agrees, stating that his Rusty Pig and The Hog Wallow Tavern “both do well all year, but we look forward to the summer season. Having the street open to pedestrians and giving folks an opportunity to dine outside is an important part of what makes downtown so special.”  

Live From Linden is an all-volunteer group of merchants and property owners on Linden Street. The Bank of the Finger Lakes once again is the main sponsor of the event. Bank Senior Vice President Heidi Westfall remarked that the “Bank of the Finger Lakes is proud to help sponsor Live from Linden again this year!  Thank you to the merchants on Linden Street that work hard to make the street so special.  We look forward to supporting another great season of live music and events on Linden Street in beautiful downtown Geneva.”  

Everyone on Linden Street believes that the weekly event is both critical to the success of local businesses and part of why Geneva is “Uniquely Urban.”
