Memphis in May

Beale Street Music Festival
Add caption
May is the month with the most celebrations in Memphis, when the city celebrates with a clutch of festivals designed not only to highlight the indigenous charms of Tennessee but also as a cultural exchange exercise, honouring a different 'guest' country each year. Kicking off the merry month is the Beale Street Music Festival, billed as 'one outrageous party' taking place over three days, with four stages on 13 hectares (33 acres) alongside the mighty Mississippi. This is followed up by the Desti-Nations International Festival featuring activities, displays and cultural exhibitions relating to the chosen guest country. The other two main events of Memphis in May are the World Championship Barbecue Contest and the Great Southern Food Festival combined with the Sunset Symphony concert on the riverbank.
