You are invited to join this longest-running church festival in New Brunswick, where the community of Johnville is set to once again celebrate more than 130 years of tradition with this annual picnic.
Originally a predominantly Irish settlement, Johnville is now a place for residents and those whose roots remain in this place, as well as newcomers, to come together to celebrate at this traditional picnic gathering.
With activities beginning in early afternoon, enjoy a children’s parade and a variety of games. Browse the booths of handmade crafts and food items on the fairgrounds. An evening smorgasbord of homemade delights, prepared by the talented ladies of Johnville, will be ready for you to enjoy for a modest fee. Such fare as salads, cold meats, pies and other desserts will be served in the church hall.
And this isn’t the end of the story… work those supper calories off in the evening with a dance under the stars, ending with a dazzling firework display, bringing the celebrations to a close for yet another year.
