The All-County Picnic is a FREE community celebration designed to inspire and strengthen local neighborhoods throughout Jefferson County as well as heighten awareness of local emergency resources.
This year’s picnic will feature live music, information tables, inspirational speakers, a demonstration area hosted by Labor Leaders and Cedar Root Folk School, a booth where you can sit and talk to your elected officials and first responders one-on-one, a kids’ zone for crafts and play, and free corn-on-the-cob! There will be local vendors on the field offering emergency preparation products for sale, if you’d like to head home with your prep supplies in hand. Plus, there will be an earthquake simulator for anyone who wants to feel what it is like to be in an earthquake.
Booths will offer information on all aspects of preparedness, including personal, home and neighborhood, what you need to know during an event, and how to plan for recovery—the things you can do now to be ready to get your life going again. There will be several short talks on things like preparing for your pets, preparing for medical needs, fire mitigation and response, what we can expect of local government during an event, etc.
There will be lots of music from several local bands with the Toolshed Trio as the featured band.
Come join us for an uplifting, playful, educational community event!
