River John Festival Days

River John celebrated its 200th birthday in 1985 with a week long festival full of fun & food for the whole family. The birthday party was so successful that it was decided to have a festival week celebration every summer from then on. It’s still just as fun and exciting as it was back in 1985. Fabulous home cooking, family activities, variety shows, a fiddling contest and street parades, to name a few, all make for an enjoyable and memorable summer vacation. Join us this summer for River John Festival Days.
