SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

All information subject to change at any time

5:00 AM - FRFR PANCAKE BREAKFAST -- CANCELED

While many parts of this year’s Johnstown BBQ Day will be the same, the pancake breakfast will, unfortunately, be canceled. This is due to the fact that we need to keep our first responders as safe as possible so they can continue to provide excellent service to our community. Bringing large groups of people into an area where crews live, work, sleep, and train adds undue risk to our first responder's safety & health during a difficult season.

8:00 AM - RHS ALUMNI 5K RUN/WALK

The Rider Ramble 5K is back for 2021!  We have missed running this past year so dust off your shoes and come join us for a fun run!  The Rider Ramble 5K will cruise through historic downtown Johnstown, starting and finishing in the heart of town on Parish Ave.  Money raised will benefit the Roosevelt High School Alumni Association and the RHS Scholarship fund.   Full details and sign-up = https://runsignup.com/Race/CO/Johnstown/RiderRamble5K2021

8:00 AM - FOOTBALL PUNT-PASS-KICK

The Punt, Pass & Kick event has quickly become a favorite morning activity on BBQ Day.   This years event will be held at the Johnstown YMCA from 8:00-10:00AM.  Registration will start at 7:30AM - prizes will be awarded for top placements in each age group.  Additional details will be posted soon.

10:00 AM - ANNUAL BBQ DAY PARADE - [REGISTRATION]

Bring the entire family, pull up a piece of sidewalk and enjoy the parade!

Updated Parade Route for 2021!!

The parade will line-up and start the same as always, but instead of passing by Parish Park and through part of downtown, the route will turn north on Columbine Ave, then head west on N 2nd St in front of the High School, then North on N Greeley St, and finally west again on N 3rd St back to Telep Ave.

10:00 AM - FOOD, ACTIVITIES, AND BOOTHS

Family friendly activities and booths spread-out through downtown and Parish Park, allowing for a larger overall space usage and social distancing, as well as helping drive additional foot traffic in and around downtown Johnstown.  We will have a number of food trucks offering savory BBQ as well as vendors with cool, sweet treats to help quench any appetite. 

10:00 AM - STAGE ENTERTAINMENT

This year we will have live stage entertainment on 2 stages; one in Parish park and one at Parish and Charlotte, downtown.  Schedule of showcase talent will be posted soon.
