     June 8-10, 2023, the City of Clinton will co-host one of the most exciting concert events in the Midwest. Tailgate N' Tallboys will boast a series of recognizable acts in country music. From Tim McGraw to Jelly Roll, fans will flock to the Greater Clinton Region to listen to their favorite artist belt out their top hits from along the Mighty Mississippi River.

    Grow Clinton, a 501(c)(6) tourism, community and economic development organization, understands the value and return on investment generated through a concert series of this magnitude. For that reason, the organization has invested $25,000 as a Diamond Box sponsor.

    "Grow Clinton is proud to be a Diamond Box sponsor for the 2023 Tailgate N' Tallboys music festival in Clinton, Iowa," stated Lesley Webster, Grow Clinton’s Director of Placemaking & Tourism. "Not only is this an excellent opportunity for our communities to enjoy top-rated entertainment, but we know it will serve as a tourist draw from states throughout the Midwest. We look forward to showing our visitors all that Clinton, Fulton, Camanche, and the surrounding areas offer."

    Utilizing the Economic Impact Calculator the Iowa Tourism Industry Partners provided, early estimates indicate a positive economic impact for the Greater Clinton Region of more than $6.5MM. These figures account for not only event ticket sales and hotels but also spending at gas stations, retail venues, and restaurants.

    Successful events will boost the region's exposure via various media forms, attract visitors, provide local jobs, and make a case for future infrastructure improvements. The benefits that Tailgate N' Tallboys will bring to the community's economy are why Grow Clinton's investment is well placed.

    Grow Clinton wants to thank the City of Clinton, Mayor Scott Maddasion, and the Clinton City Council for creating an event that will benefit the local economy and generate awareness of the entire region.

    For event sponsorship information, contact Mayor Scott Maddasion at smaddasion@cityofclintoniowa.us or Parks & Recreation Director Josh Eggers at joshuaeggers@cityofclintoniowa.us or 563-243-1260.

    The mission of Grow Clinton is to promote business growth, build community, and advocate for the sustainable economic success of the Greater Clinton Region.
