The Blue Plum Festival has become one of the South’s largest free outdoor music and arts festivals. 2014 marks the 15th year for the downtown Johnson City event. Multiple genres of music will be featured on three different stages throughout the weekend event that also includes food and craft vendors in the blocked-off streets of downtown. Other activities include The Third Annual Urban Art Throw-down featuring the best aerosol graffiti artists in the southeastern region laying down their images on suspended 6’ x 8’ canvases. There’s also a 5k Blue Plum fast walk and run, the Johnson City Omnium bike race, a roller derby and corn hole tournament. And for the kids, there’s a safe place just for them that includes fun activities including the popular Water Wars. The name, Blue Plum Festival, is in honor of the 1800s rural post office serving an area in East Tennessee that would become known as Johnson City.
