About Memphis In May

Lots of people use “Memphis In May” as shorthand to refer to one part of the festival or the other, but really, Memphis In May is the whole month that contains four different events this year. Everything’s at Tom Lee Park in downtown Memphis.

To break it down:

Beale Street Music Festival, May 3-5
Three days of live music including headliners like Cardi B, Dave Matthews Band, and The Killers. See the full lineup here, and get three day passes ($135) here. Tickets go up to $180 on April 19th at midnight.

World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, May 15 – 18  
Teams from around the world compete for the money, fame, and glory as they see who can cook the very best barbecue in the universe. The competition is fierce. If you’re not on a team, you can still enjoy entertainment and food for sale. Read more here, and get four-day passes ($40/$10 per day) here.

Great American River Run, May 25

Prices go up in mid-May. Sign up for the races here.

Celebrate Memphis, May 25
Happy 200th Birthday, Memphis! This is the big party finale at the end of a month of big parties, and it’s all about the 901’s bicentennial. (This event was formerly called 901 Fest.) There will be live music, food trucks, an air show, tons of family-friendly activities, and a huge fireworks show at the end of the night. Memphis In May is also going to try to host the World’s Largest Picnic, and will have the Guinness Book of World Records on hand to verify this accomplishment. Seriously.

    I’m finishing up my PhD in May and will have to move away from Memphis at the end of the summer. I can’t think of a better way to leave Memphis than by doing ALL of Memphis in May!!! @brainiac_ademic

  2. BOBBY WILKERSON says:

    My daughter recently turned 21. This would be her first festival and would be a great memory for both of us!

  3. Denise Norman says:

    Hi. I want to win so that I can take my sister out on the town. We used to frequent Memphis in May events back in the day, but jobs/kids/school/life changed that. This is our chance to revisit those good times. 🙂 My Instagram handle is @msdenisenorman. Thanks!

  4. Colleen Fischman says:

    I want to win because BSMF is my favorite event of the year, this is my last Memphis in May ( I will be moving in July ) and I am graduating from optometry school the following weekend! This would be the cherry on top for my last hoorah in one of your favorite cities ever!

  5. Raelynn Dorsey says:

    I would love to win so I can take my daughter to her first concert. What better place than Memphis’ own Memphis in May Beale Street Music Fest. She’s had a difficult year with a new transition and I just want to celebrate with her.

  7. Elizabeth Williams says:

    I live Memphis in May! It’s such a great thing that happens and teaches you about so many different things. This is one of the best events in Memphis! I would love to win this because I haven’t really had the money to go in the last few years and I miss it dearly. Now that I’m a teacher and have bills to pay I can’t spend money on events. I truly miss going to Memphis in May festivities!

  8. Elizabeth Williams says:

    I meant to say I love Memphis in May! My Instagram is @eevee0thelizard

  9. Jacqueline Wood says:

    I want to win so that I’ll be able to invite a really good friend. Let the festivities begin!

  12. Dorcas Rainey says:

    Hey there Holly! I have been a fan of your blog for a few years now and I have always loved the events that you share. I am a Native Memphian, but oddly enough I have never, ever in my 30 years here attended a single Memphis in May event, either for financial reasons or lack of a companion. While all of those circumstances have changed, getting the chance to finally go and for free is even more awesome!! I love my city and this experience would show me even more why it’s such a great place to live.

  13. Jennifer says:

    Hey! I’d love to win to get to know Memphis more! I don’t know any other way to start off the summer than experiencing all the great activities this beautiful city has to offer. My Instagram handle is @lilflower._
    btw love ur posts!

  14. Nichole Roberts says:

    This would be an awesome win to reward myself for all the working I have been doing for the last year getting through senior year for my son. Would be fun to enjoy the music fest and BBQ fest with him as we have been nonstop in and out, basically getting mornings only together as he is nearing the end of his senior year. I am the runner in the family, so would be awesome to get the chance to run the route in downtown Memphis. This has been a year of sacrifices to ensure my son had the senior year to remember.

  18. Natalie says:

    I want to win because I’ve never been to a Memphis in May.. I just turned 21 in August so I can legally enjoy all the fun! Memphis in May seems like the most fun thing in the world and I’d love to be able to participate!!

  19. AR says:

    I want to win because I haven’t been to Music Fest in about a decade. 🙁

  20. Hansolodolo90 says:

    Last year was my first ever music fest with my gf and our other two friends. I live in Tennessee so the drive isn’t bad at all. We had a blast and I usually try to go to at least one fest a year and this one is the ideal one because it’s so much fun the entire environment is A1 great people and even better music ❤️ I hope I win

  21. AR says:

    I forgot to add my handle, @atrainey

  22. Zsakosha says:

    I’ve been here my entire life and have yet to go to these events! Mainly because I don’t remember them until the last minute and everything is sold out lol, however before I give birth to my twins I’d love to experience it with my best friend!

  23. ZsaKosha says:

    Reading is fundamental, my IG is SugaMamaKoko

    Good luck everyone!!!

  24. Jayland Brittmon says:

  26. Christina Holloway says:

    Hi there! I think you should pick me for the ultimate Memphis giveaway because I’m a lifelong Memphian, I like free things, love representing the 901, and could definitely go for BBQ, music and a workout on the river! My Instagram handle is @_christina_e.

  27. Karen says:

    I would LOVE to win all the passes to Memphis in May because I have lived in Memphis my whole life but have never been able to go to the events. I’ve only heard and seen about it. Next year I will be leaving this amazing city for the next step in my life and I don’t want to leave without experiencing Memphis in May! I’m a huge fan of food and music and this perfect for me!

  28. Shannon says:

    I’m a single mom with 2 rambunctious boys and don’t often treat myself. So I can’t wait to win tickets and be a person who leaves the house and does fun things for the whole month of May! Thank you!!!

  31. Martin Lu says:

    instagram: @martinlulu

    Hi, I’m a medical student at UTHSC College of Medicine here in Memphis. As you can imagine, being a medical student takes up a lot of your time as well as money so I haven’t been able to really explore this beautiful city as much as I have wanted to yet. Winning this contest would give an incredible opportunity to be a part of Memphis for once!

  32. Peter Colin says:

    I’m entering because I want to treat my sister to a real MIM experience after her first year of grad school at UofM, plus bring my buddies from NY to show them what the 901 is all about. And as a Memphis away from Memphis, I need a BBQ fix so bad. Like, so bad.

  33. Lacye Story says:

    I need these tickets!!! My husband and I have been in Memphis two years and this is definitely on our Memphis to do list! Love the blog! Can’t plan without it @lacyesue

  34. Madi Leger says:

    I want to win this contest because Memphis is my home and I love getting to experience everything my city has to offer!

  35. John says:

    I love everything Memphis. Local support is everything. Instagram: jc14rk

  36. Paige Ellens says:

    Traveling to other festivals is really expensive, and music fest is definitely more affordable! Plus, Memphis is home, so that makes it special. Been every year for the past 10 years or so. ❤❤❤ @paigeellensart or @pay_jellens

  37. Honeye says:

    Memphis in May is the best part of the year folks!! You don’t wanna miss it! Insta: @honeyeheydari

  39. Jimmy R. Hanczor says:

    Good morning Holly. I would love to win because my wife and I love music fest and Beale Street! We have not been in many years because of life, kids and money. It would also let us catch up on a date night which we hardly ever have anymore because of all the reasons mentioned before. Thank you and we would love to win this wonderful prize! Have a wonderful weekend!
    @jrhanczor

  40. Nick Clark says:

    Pictzabuns.

    My family has never been to any MiM event as a familial unit. My mom’s favorite band is the Killers and it would be awesome for all of us to see them with her. We have friends who have a BBQ fest tent that would also be a good memory to share. Finally, We could certainly use the exercise and appreciate the view along the river. 🙂

  41. Austin says:

    I haven’t been to Music Fest in about a decade! 🙁 @atrainey

  42. Sydney Nelson says:

    Thanks for giving us the option to win such a great opportunity! I think I should win because I’d love to take my bff to Memphis for this amazing festival and all the other fun events in May. She and I bonded over live music and have been friends for 5 years now. I’d love the opportunity to go to another fun event and make even more memories. Plus, Khalid and Cardi B are going to be there. So we HAVE to be there too! I’d love to win!

  43. Caroline Glovka says:

    Memphis girl born and raised. Moved to Minneapolis 6 years ago and I missed Memphis so much, I’m moving back this month!! Would love to show my new Minnesota born husband what Memphis in May is all about! Instagram CAG912

    I would love to win tickets to all these great Memphis in May events! Love attending Beale Street Music Fest every year and amazed how they always manage to produce great lineups! Have yet to attend BBQ contest or Great American River Run but have heard great things about both! As an avid BBQ fan I can only imagine how fun it would be to attend the cook off!

  48. parker says:

    I would love to actually win this because I enter these all the time and i NEVER win 🙁

  51. Alonzo Foster says:

    I’d love to go to Memphis in May because after being born and raised here I’ve never been! Just moved back from Atlanta now it’s time to enjoy some real southern hospitality

  52. Riley Rainwater says:

    This year I would LOVE to win beale street music festival tickets because music festival is by far the elitist music festival in the area. Being a long time music fan, it has always been a dream of mine to attend beale street music festival. The Killers as well as Shinedown are two of my all time favorite bands and I would give anything to see them together this year at music festival. I would be so honored and thrilled to win this contest and would most definitely make memories for a lifetime that otherwise I wouldnt be able to do. My instagram is Rsrain14. Thank you so much for this opportunity

  53. Erica Bodine says:

    I want to go do all the things! I’m usually super busy and can’t go to any of these events, but free tickets would sway me. Insta: @ericabodinepottery

  54. Ashley Lax says:

    My Instagram username is ashleylax__31 and I would love for me and my fiance to be able to go and have some adult time, I am a stay at home mom and never have time for just us and this would be perfect and I have never been before and always wanted to. Please pick me!!!! I liked and followed all 3 Memphis in May accounts on Instagram and Facebook.

  55. Ms. JauR’on Taylor says:

    I would love to attend Memphis in May because I have never been to the event. I moved to Memphis by myself 7yrs ago with $200 and have been so focused on getting my ducks in a row that I didn’t take the time to enjoy all the special beautiful moments and events that Memphis has to offer. Especially with this being Memphis’ bicentennial year, I would really like to get out and meet a lot of beautiful people and enjoy the positivity.

    Thank you for this opportunity. Blessings to you.
    Peace and love.

  60. Barbara J Williams says:

    Hi Holly,
    I would love to attend Memphis in May just to get away and enjoy ALL the great musical artists, music and to relax my mind for a little while due to the fact that I can’t avoid a getaway vacation at this time. I am taking care of my mom who has Alzheimers and it is wear and tear. I’m literally in tears on a daily basis and still have to work a full time job and don’t want to go to far due to her failing health. This would be great for me to find some fun and enjoyment with my son……Thanks

  61. Natalie Davidson says:

    I would love to win this giveaway because 1. Memphis has a special place in my heart. I was born and raised here and have grown to love this unique, resilient, and thriving city where many amazing organizations and companies reside. I plan on raising my family here so that they can experience the same things I have! 2. Memphis in May is a month long of partying that I just can’t pass up due to not being able to buy tickets for all the events! I’ve planned on running the half marathon and going to Music Fest and I would love to go to the other events as well! These are fun and exciting events that bring the city of Memphis together to let loose and enjoy our great city!

I am a 73 year old female Military Veteran who served my country proudly and courageously in the war in Vietnam in the 1960’s. I love meeting new friends, exploring new places, and I absolutely enjoy listening to all genres of good music and dancing! “Memphis, Tennessee” is the ideal place to hang out and enjoy life! Way to go!

  90. Brittany Butts says:

    Forgot to leave my insta in the first comment: @brittbutts

    I moved to Memphis last May for a program called Memphis Teacher Residency. Since then, I have been full-time teaching in Memphis and pursuing a graduate degree in Urban Education. With very limited finances and time, I have barely begun to enjoy all that this city has to offer! Memphis in May tickets would help me continue to make Memphis home and would be an awesome way to help me celebrate my graduation and the end of the school year! Hoping to get lucky and enjoy one more thing to love about this city!

  91. BOBBY WILKERSON says:

    My daughter has never been to any of the MIM festivities so this would be a great opportunity to introduce her to what May is all about in Memphis!

    Hi Holly,

    Attending the Memphis in May events this year would be so awesome. In my 26 years of living here, I have not had the opportunity. I am a college student who unfortunately cannot afford the events because tuition is kicking my butt right now. I would love to enjoy this experience with my boyfriend and it would be a great 2 year anniversary gift. We are also both graduating this year and we could end our senior year with a bang. There also is no better way to celebrate Memphis’ 200th birthday than with Memphis at May.

    Thank you!

  120. Brandon North says:

    Went the past 2 years, I love all the music and vendors, and meet lots of great people everytime. The best part is that its outside, rain or shine, it’s always a blast!
    My ex left me for another she was cheating with, and stuck me with the bills. They slashed my tires, so my rent money went to a new set. I’m in school full time, and work as much as I can. Had to take out a title loan to pay my rent late. So being able to go this year would be incredible, and a huge boost to my motatavion to graduate again and work towards a promotion. Love what you do, you help me & others discover new things to experience in the city. My old teacher, Thomas Midgley recommended your blog to us. Keep up the great work, its inspiring and uplifting!

  121. Katie L says:

I am always checking the blog for free things to do in Memphis as well as the 5 things to do this weekend. My favorite posts are when Holly reviews a new restaurant. Winning tickets would help me check something off my Memphis bucket list! My instagram is @angelica._.monique

  145. Andie Hales says:

    I would love to win tickets to Memphis in May! I’ve lived in Memphis all of my life but I have never been able to go to one of the Memphis in May events.

It’s also one of my goals this year to complete a 5k and it would be awesome to do the Great American River Run!

    Hi!
    My fiancee and I are new to Memphis. We moved to Memphis from the Bay Area in California for a work opportunity.
    So far, we are loving this city and the events/community involvement. This month long celebration of Memphis in May would be a great opportunity to learn more about the city and culture and a way to get
    immersed!

    Cheers,
    @itz_lindz

  155. Taylor says:

    I have lived downtown for 11 years but have never been able to go to the festival. Some of my favorite artists are performing this year and I would love to see them. I also would love to have the experience and see the culture of the festival!

    I would love to be able to take my 15 year old daughter for the first time. She is an amazing child, straight A student, heavily involved in school clubs and teams, plus she dances and does community/school theatre. I would to give her all she wants. Not a sob story, but her father is in remission from cancer and was diagnosed this week with osteonecrosis. This is death of the bones in his hips. This summer it is probable that we will have double hip replacement. Our daughter has been amazing through everything. She is such a support for me. She has no idea how much I love her and want to give her the world. Unfortunately my check and his disability do not allow for all we want for her. This would be an amazing gift. Thank you for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.

    This would be so amazing to win! I’ve already taken off work for both the Beale Street Music Festival and the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest (which I have a friend that is apart of a team competing this year), but I haven’t purchased any tickets yet. If I were to win I would defiantly sign up to run (more like jog) in the Great American River Run which I have never attended nor the Celebrate Memphis event. It would be awesome to win and get the full Memphis in May experience. Memphis is already one of my favorite cities and this would just make my year if I were to win! I love everything that the city has to offer from history, nightlife, and culture. Thanks for this opportunity Holly!!! #ilovememphis

    Well, first I want to say that Memphis is my hometown and I’ve nevwr even been to anything but the music festival in May! It would be an honor for me to get to go to all of the exciting things going on for Memphis in May. I love Memphis! My boyfriend has never to any event like this and it would be so great if we won this because times are tough right now.

    I need to feel alive again and this will definitely bring me back to life or at least create a pulse. The coffee at Cafe Eclectic in Midtown can only do so much.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s delish, but it’s time for other stimulants.

    I would like to win these tickets because…… My friends are making fun of me for not having enough money to go. Last year we made a promise that we were all getting together for these events. My finances have drastically changed. I started a new LLC and have had to put all my money into it. Winning these tickets would mean the world to me – not only could I enjoy these events with my friends, but I also could prove to them that money isn’t everything.

    Respectfully,

    I have always loved Beale Street and last year at music fest I had the time of my life. I am, although, a broke college student, and these tickets would make things so much easier!

  170. Caitlan Dew @caitlandew says:

    Hello! I’ve lived here my whole life. My birthday is this weekend and all I’ve been doing is working and saving up my money for bsmf! I’m a full time student and athlete so I don’t get the hours I want and don’t make the money I wish I had. This would really help me out since this summer I’ll be nonstop working and have to pay for anything that I want to do on my own, such as trips, eating with friends, etc. I got to go for my first time ever last year and it was so much fun! My friend is driving here from Texas just to see me and go to bsmf. We haven’t seen each other in five months. I think it would be such a great treat for us to enjoy Memphis in May together. Thank you!

    I just moved closer to Memphis and I’ve always wanted to experience Memphis in May. I’m up at 2am reading the I Love Memphis blog. ‍♀️ I need to go. instagram: @april_huck

    Why do I want to win MIM BMSF tickets … I have not been to BSMF in ages. I turned 30 last year and I think the last time I went I was 15 or 16. I haven’t been because of a combination of adulting responsibilities and budgeting. BSMF is one of the things that I always loved about Memphis. It’s one of those events that we have that showcases how unique our city really is. We literally live in the biggest small town – and like small towns, we know how to come together and party, support one another, and love one another. Also, everyone seriously knows everyone. Its a little weird, but I love it, just like Memphis.

    I want to win because my sister and I always go together, but this year I just really can’t afford it for the both of us and I won’t go if she doesn’t. It’s been out thing for a while though and I don’t want to break tradition, also I really want to see Cardi B!! @allie_purvis is my insta!

  211. Kathleen Bernal says:

    I want to win because I’m obsessed with the music fest, but have never been able to get back down for the other events. Memphis is just a few hours away, but it feels like home every time I go! @d.cruse34

    I just moved back to Memphis after being away fro 7 years, and during that time, I realized how much Memphis became my home while I was here initially. This would be a great way to cap off a first year back home!

    Hey! My insta is @magensmayhem

    I would really like to win because I have been going to BSMF since I was 15, and haven’t missed a year yet! This will be my 16th year straight. My birthday is May 8th so MIM has always been my celebration. I have loved getting to watch this month long event grow more and more every year. Money is really tight this year, and it would be beyond helpful and stress relieving to know I don’t have to worry about this expense, or that I don’t have to pick and choose which events I want to attend solely because of monetary restrictions.

    Thank you for the amazing opportunity!
