Capacity Increased for NQC Fall Festival 2020 Due to Government Mandate Revisions

 This evening, the NQC Board of Directors announced that, due to Governor Bill Lee lifting some restrictions imposed on Tennessee businesses, capacity will be increased for the remaining nights of the NQC Fall Festival event being held at the LeCont Center in Pigeon Forge, TN.

Previously, attendance was capped at 1,500 per night. This is a drastic change from past years of NQC, when nightly capacity attendance reached 11,000.

Half of the venue will be at an increase in capacity allowing 4 chairs to be grouped in a pod, and the other half of the venue will remain at 2 chairs in a pod to accommodate those who still wish to remain socially distanced.

This will allow more Gospel music fans to attend the event—which was sold out through the weekend.

This seating arrangement and increase in capacity follows all Tennessee state mandates and guidelines set forth by Governor Bill Lee today, Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

The changes will take effect immediately on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

Clarke Beasley, NQC Executive Vice President, says “We are grateful for the excellent leadership of Gov. Bill Lee and for him lifting restrictions allowing for us to increase capacity and fully exercise our freedom to assemble.”
