The All County Picnic motivates east Jefferson County residents to develop resiliency through fostering community and raising awareness about local emergency resources. The Picnic is a chance to shake hands with local emergency management, first responders, community leaders and elected officials, eat (free!) corn on the cob with your neighbors and learn about the resources that exist to serve you and your community. Featuring live music, food vendors, group games, information booths, speakers and demonstrations, kids' activities and, yes, free corn on the cob, this celebration is as fun as it is informing.
The All County Picnic is produced in partnership between Local 20/20, Jefferson County's Department of Emergency Management (JCDEM) and The Production Alliance. The JCDEM holds the event out as a model for other EM organizations across the state.
The theme of this year’s Picnic is Health and Wellness. Needless to say, we will be adjusting our event plans to meet the protocols of our time. Stay tuned for updates.
