Green Days: June 15-18, 2017

Green Days is held every year in Johnston Commons --- the grassy area located near the Johnston Public Library. The above photo gallery features the Johnston Fire Department's annual pancake breakfast, the Johnston Police Department's annual spaghetti feed and safety expo, and the annual Green Days parade and carnival in 2014.

Why is the event called Green Days? When the event was started in 1996, it focused on Johnston’s agricultural and horticultural tradition. The Chamber worked with Johnston’s many nursery and greenhouse operations, local garden clubs and other groups, to start this tradition—and helped it grow to be one of Iowa’s leading summer festivals.
