Our mission is to invest in Downtown Johnson City
through cultural experiences that create lifelong
memories for today and tomorrow.

We produce four events each year in the Downtown Johnson City area that bring
the community together and promote health, community and the arts!
The Blue Plum Organization is a not for profit 501c3 organization.

Blue Plum Festival

The Blue Plum festival began in 1999 with the idea of bringing awareness to Downtown Johnson City- and having a little fun!  We have watched our downtown flourish and continue to bring the festival to the greater Johnson City community each year- highlighting our growing and thriving downtown area!

The festival consists of a 5K race, two days of music, art and craft vendors, children’s area, food court and much much more!  Our goal is to create events that families and friends can enjoy and make memories for years to come!

This years festival will take place on June 2nd & 3rd in Founders Park of Downtown Johnson City. Event’s include music & arts, a 5K, a kids zone, a chalk art competition, and even a silent disco (yes you heard that right!). There is so much to this years Blue Plum festival you have to attend to see it all. Interested in being a vendor or need more information? Learn More
