Downtown Johnson City Candy Land Christmas

November 27 - December 2

Connect Downtown Johnson City, in collaboration with the City of Johnson City and Visit Johnson City, is
excited to announce downtown’s holiday tradition, Candy Land Christmas, will return in 2021 with thousands
of lights for people to enjoy! As a gift to our community, this event features magical displays, 152 Christmas
trees, a holiday market, and much more. This year’s Candy Land Christmas will be a lasting memory for people
of all ages.

Candy Land Christmas’ celebration will kick off November 27 at 7 p.m. with a grand lighting event in the heart
of Downtown. During the Grand Lighting event, attendees will be able to enjoy a musical performance from
the Indian Trail Intermediate School Chorus at King Commons and the First Christian Church Choir at Founders
Park. The Christmas trees will remain lit every evening until January 2, 2022. This event will bring Christmas
cheer to residents, visitors, and businesses for over a month.

Thanks to presenting sponsor, Bank of Tennessee, Candy Land Christmas will double in size from last year,
featuring 152 holiday trees, 150 of which are decorated by either local businesses or non-profit organizations.
Together these trees help tell the story of our community. This year, holiday trees will transform Founders
Park to the Gumdrop Forest and King Commons to Cupcake Commons. By expanding our Christmas footprint,
we will welcome more visitors to the event and allow for ample space for social distancing and safe holiday

This Christmas celebration is not only a great, free event for families and friends to enjoy during the holiday
season, but also benefits the community and local businesses. Candy Land Christmas will be an anchor event
during the holiday season. Connect Downtown Johnson City hopes families will visit downtown to walk
through our greenspaces, grabbing dinner at a local restaurant and shopping at a small business, we anticipate
this event will fuel our local businesses and support our district.

Candy Land Christmas is more than just two parks filled with Christmas decorations – it’s a community event
that brings everyone together, creates a lifetime of memories, and is now a great annual tradition.
This event wouldn’t be made possible without our sponsors: Bank of Tennessee, Evans and Evans Real Estate
Agents – Cortney Stewart and Amanda Westbrook, Gabriel’s Christmas, TownView Senior Living, SaladWorks,
and Brightridge Broadband.
