Continuing on the tradition of the beloved Lower Town Arts & Music Festival, we were proud to present the most anticipated event of 2021! YACtoberfest is a celebration of all things art, community, and music! This festival served as a pandemic recovery fundraiser for the Yeiser Art Center, Paducah’s oldest arts organization. Not intended to be a replacement for LTAMF, we used this as an opportunity to bring something new and exciting to our community. 


Through the rain, the heat, the sun, the mud, the dirt… We had an incredible time. YACtoberfest was a labor of love, and an experience we’ll never forget.

Thank you to all of our sponsors for making this event possible in the first place (make sure to support them too!).

Thank you to every single person who bought a ticket and donated.

Thank you to every musician that stepped on our stages and every artist that set up a booth.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and all of our committee members who have been working on this festival for almost two years.

Thank you to:

GT Productions and Tyler Wallace’s team that helped bring the best production in West Kentucky.

Harper Guitars for donating their time and resources to taking care of our musicians.

Nikki May for designing our festival logo and all of our graphics.

Paducah Beer Werks for hosting our afterparties.

Schlafly Beer and Dry Ground Brewing for slinging the brews.

Fresh Foodies for keeping us fed.

Luero, Pokey LaFarge and Nappy Roots for bringing their talents to Paducah and headlining YACtoberfest

The City of Paducah and McCracken County for supporting the Yeiser Art Center.

We did this for the community and to raise vital funds to help us recover from this pandemic, and we hope we did you proud. ❤️
