Founders After 5 is a FREE, outdoor concert series host in Founders Park in Downtown Johnson City on most Friday evenings from May until September. Music begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m.

Bring your family, friends, blanket or chair, and pick up a to-go order from your favorite downtown restaurant. Beer, soda, and water will be sold and served by local, non-profit organizations each week. NO outside alcohol is allowed in the park. Dogs are allowed if kept on a leash. Dancing is not only allowed, but highly encouraged!

This year’s sponsors include Samuel Adams, Cherokee Distributing, and Eastman Credit Union. The series is hosted by the Johnson City Development Authority (JCDA).
