We Are... The Nashville Penn Staters

We Are... An Active and Social Chapter

If you are looking for camaraderie with fellow Penn Staters, then you've come to the right place! Whether it's watching a televised Penn State sporting event or soaking up some of the fun things Nashville has to offer, we are sure you'll find something to take part in. 

We work hard to come up with a variety of activities, and we hope something resonates with you. If not, please email us your ideas and suggestions to: nashvillepennstate@gmail.com. Thank you!


Penn State football is returning to the field for the '22 season and Penn State alumni and friends in the Nashville area can catch all of the action at TailGate Brewery - Germantown (located directly next to the Nashville Sounds Stadium). 

Along with a new venue, the look of some of this season's viewing parties will be a little different.  The chapter board voted to hold "hybrid" viewing parties this season.  What's that you ask...well if you have been to our viewing parties before you'll know that we sometimes have a DJ (shout out to Melvin!), door prizes, ask for scholarship donations, open a pop-up store, make chapter halftime announcements, etc.  Hybrid means we will still have most of that at our big opponent games but not every game (ie. Ohio University doesn't, Ohio State does).  The reason for this came down to board member staffing.  Each of these viewing parties involves a lot more work than most members realize.  As the current board's headcount is a little smaller than past years, we still wanted to hold our typical fantastic viewing parties but needed to be cognizant of everyone's time and availability.  

Please join your fellow Nittany Lions at as many viewing parties as you can.  TBG is a brand-new establishment with lots of TVs inside and out, a growing menu, full bar and is family/pet friendly.  Every game is still a great Penn State football game!

A Note About Parking:

Free on-street parking is available where you can find it, as well as a paid parking deck nearby.  Important Note: There is an expensive, paid lot directly across from TailGate.  This lot uses license plate readers and will charge you even if you use the lot as a turnaround.
