From music to art there is a wide variety of showing that regularly comes to Founders Park for a tradition of free concerts introduced by locals for locals. Talent flows as strings are picked, rhythms rung and song sung by the audible arts. Spanning a wide range of genres there is always something new to experience when the crowds gather for Founders After 5. 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).
