You’re Invited To A Tourism Party In The Park 2016

Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 26th 2016 10605 0

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. To celebrate, next week is National Travel and Tourism Week, and the Memphis CVB is celebrating by throwing a big Party In The Park. You’re invited!

Yes those are rubber duckies in the fountain!

Memphis’ favorite organizations and attractions will take over Court Square downtown on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We’re gonna fill it up with booths, activities, entertainment and food trucks.

Amurica Photo Booth at Party In The Park

The Party In The Park has been super fun the past two years. It’s 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 2015 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, Fresh Gulf Shrimp, Stick ‘Em, Central BBQ, and MemPOPs Food Trucks
– Metal Museum with a hands-on activity
– Live Music
– Amurica Photo Booth “I Love Memphis” edition (free photos!)
– Antique Car from American Dream Safari and Rockabilly Tours
– Giveaways and displays from local attractions and organizations

And More – I’ll add to this list as I get more details.


I’ll be there, probably with some stickers and clings on me to give away. Don’t be shy about saying hello and asking for some stickers!

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.

    Sounds like a great event, but I am so confused about the date. On the email you sent, it states, “Tuesday, May 6, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m” at the top then at the bottom it says “Tuesday, May 4
    11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.”

    On the blog at the top it says “Tuesday, May 3, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m” at the top and at the bottom it says “Tuesday, May 4 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.” at the bottom.

    Can you send an email out clarifying the dates?

    Thank you again for keeping me informed about the wonderful things happening in Memphis!!
