The Little Chicago Downtown is an annual Music & Arts Festival that debuted on August 12-13, 2016, fueled by the Downtown Merchants Association and an enthusiastic group of volunteers who have a heart for Downtown Johnson City. Our region has a rich heritage in music, arts and food, and the Little Chicago Downtown Arts & Music Festival is a great opportunity to bring the community together, celebrating what makes our downtown awesome!
First and foremost, our goal with the Little Chicago Downtown Music & Arts Festival is to provide a FREE festival for our community to enjoy. Our vision is to see the streets of Downtown Johnson City filled with families enjoying fantastic regional music, fine arts and crafts, and the best in local and regional foods. We encourage everyone to stop in and shop at any of the wonderful downtown businesses while strolling through and enjoying the festive atmosphere
Our 2016 festival was a huge success, thanks to our wonderful vendors, sponsors and volunteers. Our 2017 festival is shaping up to be another great success as we have had tremendous feedback from last years participants and are working to make sure the 2017 is even better!
We are still pulling all of the details together for our 2017 festival, and the information will be posted right here as it is available. You can keep engaged with us via social media on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat as well.

We look forward to seeing you in August!
