Snowy Downtown JC

Extending warm holiday greetings from all of us here at Spark Plaza to your rainy Wednesday morning inbox. We hope that the season has started wonderfully with family, friends, food, hot chocolate and fireplaces!

This month, in lieu of a First Friday lunch, come ring in the season with the rest of the downtown community! The Johnson City Christmas Tree lighting ceremony is First Friday, Dec. 2  at 6:00 p.m. at the new location of Buffalo Street Plaza—right in Spark Plaza’s front yard! The Christmas parade kicks off from ETSU the next morning at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, with Whooville Village family festivities following the parade’s arrival to Founder’s Park.

Don’t miss Johnson City-turned-Whovillle this weekend! See you *next year* at First Friday lunch! ;-D


Spark Plaza has ONE available space right now, so if you know anyone in need of an awesome new office space, (or a 5-day pass stocking stuffer) you know where to send them!

In addition to the tree lighting and parade, here are a few more ways to spend the Christmas season in JC!

Johnson City Brewing Company

JCBC has expanded to an all-new downtown tap room at 257 East Main Street. Come warm up from the cold evenings at downtown’s newest watering hole and enjoy their seasonal holiday brews.

Downtown Holiday Shopping

The week of December 2-10, downtown merchants are extending their hours to suit holiday shopping needs. Come say hi to our Main Street neighbors when looking for delightfully unique gifts this season.

Tri-JS Meetup
