Thanks to all sponsors, vendors, parade entries, and to the citizens of Johnstown and surrounding areas for making BBQ day a great success! See you in 2022!
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.
