One of Memphis' biggest music festivals is coming up this weekend and even though it's been around for more than 20 years, it still kind of seems like a bit of a secret. Assignment #238 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to check out the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival.
The Center for Southern Folklore's Memphis Music and Heritage Festival is two days of southern-fried live music, dancing, cooking, storytelling and vendors that happens annually on Labor Day weekend.
This year, there will be more than 60 live performances from all genres. The Music and Heritage Fest is probably the only place where you can see mariachi, ballet, rappers and kids playing jazz music in a single place on a single day.
When: 11 a.m. – 11 p.m., Sept. 1 and 2, 2012
Where: Center for Southern Folklore (119 S. Main St., No. 106)
Who: All ages are welcome.
How much: Free
