Visit the Memphis in May International Festival

Memphis in May

Looking for something fun to do this summer? Hop in your car and visit the Memphis in May International Festival, which has drawn massive crowds and promoted civic pride for more than 40 years. Some of the most popular events are the Beale Street Music Fest, International Week, the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, and the Great American River Run Half Marathon and 5K.

The Beale Street Music Fest will be May 3 to 5, and it will include guests like Cardi B, the Dave Matthews Band, The Killers, Khalid, and more. Over 60 artists will be present in total, covering four stages. You can buy single-day tickets, three-day passes, or VIP tickets.

International Week will feature a special focus on Columbia. Every year, the festival has an international salute to a foreign country, featuring guest performances, exhibits, lectures, shows, and food.

The Barbecue Contest — referred to by USA Today at the “Most Prestigious Barbecue Contest” around — will run from May 15 to 18. More than 75,000 people contend in categories like ribs, shoulders, whole hog, hot wings, sauce, and “anything but pork.” With more than $115,000 in prize money, it’s easy to see why so many people participate.

Finally, the Half Marathon and 5K will be on May 25. Be sure to bring your running shoes, and visit the post-race party for food, live music, and more.
