Rest assured: There should be beer at the Little Chicago Festival this weekend.

The Johnson City Board of Commissioners will meet at 7:30 a.m. Thursday in a special meeting to consider a temporary occasion beer license application for the Little Chicago Downtown Music & Arts Festival this weekend.

Mayor Jenny Brock said the application was not submitted in time for commissioners to consider during their regular meeting on Aug. 1.

“We felt it would dramatically impact their festival,” she said.

She said this will be the only item in the board’s agenda for the special meeting.

The music and arts festival will occur Friday and Saturday in downtown Johnson City. A full list of activities can be found on the festival’s website.
