While this year’s “Celebration Johnstown” will not look like it has in past years, we would be remiss if we let this year go without some type of community observance.  With that being said, we are working on providing the community with an online based event which will have music and activities by our well known and loved Celebration Johnstown regulars.  In addition, we are hoping that the fireworks show can go on.  We have received a grant from the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies for a Dec. 31, 2020 fireworks display that covers half of the fireworks cost and the fireworks company is reserving the date for us.  We need to raise an additional $2,000 to make this year’s show possible.

We really hope you consider donating to help brighten the community’s sprit with renewed hope for 2021.  In previous years, we have suggested donation levels of $250, $500 & $1,000.  Although any amount would be beneficial this year.

Donations are directed through the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies - Celebration Johnstown Fund:

As a thank you for your donation, we welcome you to record a thank you message that we will post online (emailed to as well businesses and organizations will also be recognized during all sponsor thank you mentions.
