The City of Nortonville’s
Total Solar Eclipse Festival & Campgrounds
Come to the “crossroads of America” in Nortonville, Kentucky to get one of the best views of a rare celestial event – a total solar eclipse! This once-in-a-lifetime event will happen on August 21, 2017, and we’ve planned two days of fun & festivities to celebrate. There will be live music, food, & other exciting activities starting on Sunday (August 20) and continuing until the eclipse itself on Monday at around 1:25PM (Central Time). Be sure to join us on Monday at our prime viewing location at the Nortonville Ballpark to see 2 minutes 14 seconds of solar eclipse totality.
Need a place to stay for the big event?
We are opening three RV/camper sites at the Nortonville Lake Area (with water hookup but no electricity). Primitive camping sites for tents are also available at this location.
During the Eclipse Weekend, we will also offer Primitive Camping sites at the City’s Ballpark. We have temporary site accommodations for RVs and Campers (water hook-ups but no electricity). Each RV/Camper rental includes a free wastewater pass. There are also several tent sites available at the Ballfield Area.
Experience small town life and hospitality at its finest. Our town is located 25 miles north of Hopkinsville, KY and just 90 miles north of Nashville, TN and is within easy reach of other events & festivals taking place in western Kentucky and Tennessee.
