AS OF 8/13/21: Touchdowns and Tunes Tailgate Party will NOT require proof of vaccination OR proof of negative COVID test. Safety measures will include temperature check at the gate, handwashing stations, and decreased capacity. 


The health and safety of our attendees is our greatest priority. Touchdowns and Tunes has and continues to actively assess the risk levels associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Leading up to September of 2021, we will closely monitor and observe all guidelines and required restrictions from the CDC, FDA and state and local governments on a weekly basis. With Touchdowns and Tunes Tailgate Party being an outdoor event, the festival will proceed as scheduled. However, in the event of a forced cancellation by the local and state governments, all tickets purchased will be refunded to the purchasers.

As with attending any mass gathering or live event, with it comes an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19. By entering the TNT grounds, you assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Carson Park is located at 300 N 30th Street, Paducah, KY 42001!

Gates open Friday at 4:00pm, Saturday at 11:30am, and Sunday at 11:30am
