Around Johnson City, everyone loves the month of June. Warm weather, tons of outdoor activities, and most of all, The Blue Plum Festival. Anyone around here will tell you: Blue Plum is as good a community festival as you’ll find in these parts…and there’s a ton of history behind it too!

For starters, “Blue Plum” was the original name given to the community where Johnson City now sits. And just as Johnson City has done over the years, The Blue Plum Festival continues to grow every year.

It started with music, and now features a host of local, regional, and national musical acts, as well as an animation festival, a 5k run, a cornhole tournament, art exhibits, a bicycle race, and much more. And if you’ve never seen 70,000 people flood Main Street in Johnson City, it’s truly a sight to behold!

This year’s lineup includes: Donna the Buffalo, Southern Culture on the Skids, The Gourds, local favorites Wolf Creek, and many, many more! It all starts Friday June 4…See you there!
