Last year it was a blast, basically a pop-up Memphis vacation – a sampling of uniquely Memphis people and things all in one place on one day. Check out the photos from 2014 right here. This year, come by for lunch and fun.

Here are some of the things we’ll have at Party In The Park this year:

– Fuel, Hot Mess, and Stick ‘Em Food Trucks

– Beale Street Flippers
– Chalk artists
– Metal Museum mobile forge

– Amurica Photo Booth “I Love Memphis” edition (free photos!)
– Antique Car from American Dream Safari

Fun facts about tourism: 10 million people visit Memphis every year from all over the world, and tourism has about a $3 billion economic impact.

I hope to see you there!

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
