The Town of Johnstown and the BBQ Day Committee are committed to protecting the health and well-being of our community. We are following the safety guidelines and recommendations from the County and State Health Departments. BBQ Day 2021 is still to be determined, but we will post updates as we have them.
WHAT IS BBQ DAY?
While the Town of Johnstown was established in 1902, the idea of a local celebration started a decade later, in 1912 with Dairy Day, to promote the dairy industry in this area. Circus-type tents were set up to house events and cattle judging. Farmers from throughout the state, as well as surrounding states, came to Johnstown to exhibit their cattle, see the exhibits, and hear speakers with the industry. They also brought their families to enjoy the carnival rides, games, entertainment and food of the day.
