There are lots of ways to be a part of the eclipse!


Support the Event:

Donations for event supplies, including the purchase of solar eclipse glasses is appreciated, as the whole community is joining together on this endeavor.   This is vital to creating a safe and memorable experience for all coming to our fine city to live the moment. 

We welcome donations of any size to support Embrace the Dark.  This is not a specific festival, but a series of events all across the area to pick and choose from, to ensure a satisfying experience for everyone.  Funds raised will be used for website promotion listing events, solar eclipse glasses, event setup, and the initial cost of eclipse memorabilia, as well as portable restroom rentals, printed materials, etc.  We are a nonprofit organization and wish for this endeavor to benefit Geneva as a whole and all of its small businesses, entrepreneurs, departments and nonprofits.  Any event proceeds will go towards nonprofit endeavors to directly aid Geneva.

    to allow them to experience this event safely.

If you are serious about being involved in the city-wide planning of the Embrace the Dark festival of events, email us to request attendance at our monthly meetings.  Our meetings involve events, infrastructure, traffic, eclipse and future tourism, parking, emergency planning, advertising, safety, merchandise, marketing, logistics, media coverage, joining businesses and organizations in collaborations and assuring the best experience possible for all involved.

Attend our Next Community Meeting

Join us on March 8th at 4pm at 41 Lakefront Hotel for our One Month Out meeting.  All businesses, municipalities, organizations and residents are invited to attend.  Meetings usually last about an hour - just enough time to talk about upcoming events, see what others are planning and discuss logistics of such a large event in our small town.  This will be our last community meeting before the eclipse, so if you have something to say or something to ask, be sure to attend!
