About the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival
The event is produced by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association (JAHA), a non-profit organization that brought the National Folk Festival to Johnstown in 1990 for a three-year run. JAHA began to produce the festival on its own in 1993, renaming it the Johnstown FolkFest and holding it annually over Labor Day weekend. In 2009, the festival underwent some changes, including a name change to better reflect the types of music offered, as well as a date change. AmeriServ Financial has been involved with the festival since its beginning, and in 2009 will celebrate its 14th anniversary as title sponsor.
JAHA is a non-profit, membership-based organization that exists to preserve and present Johnstown’s nationally significant stories to the nation. It operates the Johnstown Discovery Network, which includes the Johnstown Flood Museum and the Heritage Discovery Center, and the Wagner-Ritter House and Garden, as well as the new Johnstown Children's Museum. JAHA also produces various special events throughout the year, including the music festival, the Johnstown Film Festival, Last Friday at the Ethnic Social Club and more.
