St. Andrew’s Festival will be held from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday on the church and school grounds at 1621 Ferndale Ave., Johnstown.

The festival will open with a children’s matinee from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday featuring Classic Clowns, Johnstown police K-9 demonstrations, Johnstown Fire Department, horse and buggy rides, bouncy house, Spiderman and free popcorn, said Carolyn Blough, co-chairwoman for the festival.

Wine tasting with B&L Wine Cellars of Johnstown will be held from 3 to 9 p.m.

“There will be samples, and you can choose which wine to buy,” Blough said.

Bill Venet’s Cash Review will play two sets Saturday afternoon from 3 to 4 and 4:45 to 5:30, and Mark Keyser will demonstrate chain saw carving from 5:30 to 6.
