In 1994, with the revival of the Leominster Downtown Association, the Johhny Appleseed Festival began as a modest event featuring local crafts people, food, entertainers, a petting zoo and face painting - Today, the event has grown into two days of celebration, including the Johnny Appleseed 5K Road Race, and the Johnny Appleseed Parade and has been renamed the Johnny Appleseed Arts and Crafts Festival.

Ever since his birth certificate was found collecting dust in City Hall archives in the 1930s, Johnny Appleseed has been embraced by the city of his birth.

He is everywhere.

So it is no surprise that Leominster makes the apple-picking season the occasion for an annual Johnny Appleseed celebration.
