Johnson City: Candy Land Christmas

November 26, 2022 - January 8, 2023

Connect Downtown Johnson City, in partnership with the City of Johnson City and
Visit Johnson City, is excited to announce the return of the beloved Candy Land Christmas. With magical
holiday displays, over 160 Christmas trees, makers markets, and much more, Candy Land Christmas is a “must-
see” event. The celebration will kick off Nov. 26 at 6:30 p.m. by presenting sponsor, Bank of Tennessee, with a
grand lighting event at King Commons, in the heart of Downtown. The Christmas trees – displayed throughout
two parks – will remain lit every evening until Jan. 8, 2023. For more than five weeks, the event will bring
Christmas cheer to residents, visitors, and businesses.

Candy Land Christmas features live 12-foot trees decorated by a local business or non-profit organization that
together tell the story of our community. Holiday trees will transform Founders Park to the “Gumdrop Forest”
and King Commons to “Cupcake Commons.” Visitors can follow Commerce Street, or “Candy Cane Lane,” to
see the entire display. This year’s celebration will also include holiday music playing throughout the parks,
special events most weekends, and new decorations throughout the district.

Connect Downtown Johnson City invites everyone to visit downtown, walk through greenspaces, grab dinner
at a local restaurant, and shop at a local retailer.

“This Christmas celebration is a free event with a Hallmark-movie feel that can be enjoyed by families and
friends while benefitting the community and local businesses,” said Lindsey Jones, deputy director of Connect
Downtown Johnson City.

Candy Land Christmas was recognized as a “Christmas Display that’s Larger than Life” in the New York Post
and on Fox News as in 2021. Join us in 2022 to experience it yourself, start a new tradition and create a
lifetime of memories.

The event is made possible by through the support of local businesses and sponsors like Bank of Tennessee,
BrightRidge, TPI Corporation, TownView Senior Living, and Appalachian Maid Services.
