Johnson Works Community Organization

Johnson Works logo facebook friendly format


Johnson Works’ mission is to enhance the quality of life for people who live, work and visit Johnson by helping the downtown develop as a vital and diverse community center for commercial, cultural and entertainment activities, education, recreation, dining and residential use.

Our work falls into two major areas. The first area is the events/activities that will promote public use of the downtown and make Johnson a better place to live, conduct business and visit. The second broad category is marketing and promoting Johnson as a cultural, educational, recreational and shopping hub for residents and visitors.

Project Examples: 

  • Johnson Holiday Jubilee – winter holiday event to celebrate the holidays and encourage shopping locally. Businesses stay open for extra hours and there are community activities all around the downtown.
  • Outdoor Sculpture Show – coordinate an exhibit of sculptures along Main Street
  • Downtown WI-FI + launch of









We meet every secondTuesday of the month in Lovin Cup Cafe at 8:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend!
