With the start of another Carolina Panthers season just weeks away, the fans have so many questions. How many games does the team need to win for head coach Matt Rhule to keep his job? Who will be the Panthers’ starting quarterback, Sam Darnold or Baker Mayfield? What is Sir Purr’s secret to beating the summer heat under all of that thick fur?

While we may not get any of those questions answered just yet, we can at least get a look at the 2022-23 team this week when Panthers Fan Fest returns to Bank of America Stadium (800 S. Mint Street) on Thursday, August 11th. You’ll be able to see the Panthers practice on the stadium field, plus enjoy performances by the TopCats, Sir Purr, PurrCussion and the Black & Blue Crew.

According to the team website, the night of football and fun will be capped off with a fireworks and laser display. For the first time ever, you can be a part of the show thanks to new interactive LED wristbands provided by Daimler Truck of North America.

Tickets to Fan Fest are $5 with proceeds benefiting Carolina Panthers Charities’ on-going mission to serve communities across the Carolinas. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Entertainment begins at 6:00 p.m. Practice starts at 7:00 p.m. Oh, and the NFL Clear Bag Policy will be in effect at the stadium.
