Fieldaze Inaugural Memphis Outdoor Festival This November

New festival alert! 

There’s a new three-day outdoors-oriented fest starting in downtown Memphis this November 5-7, hosted by Discover Memphis Naturally. They’re calling it “3 days of revelry by the river” and I think it’s a fabulous idea.

The Competitions 

Fieldaze’s main events are three competitions: a half marathon/5K race across Big River Crossing, a kayak race in Wolf River Harbor, and a cycling competition. You can register for these through the Fieldaze website. 

  • Peer Power BRX Half-Marathon and 5K Race ($25 - $55) 
  • “Huzzah! On The Harbor” Kayak Race in Wolf River Harbor ($40)
  • Grit & Grind Gravel Grinder Bike Race ($45)

There are actually a couple of different 5Ks going on across town that are a part of Fieldaze weekend. More info on the Memphis Adventures website. 

Fieldaze activities: Skating, Dancing, Fitness, Food

In addition to these races, there will also be a TON of free, family-friendly actives going on all weekend. I’ve rarely seen a festival so jam-packed with activities.

Expect free fitness classes and fun throughout the weekend hosted by the DMC including lots of yoga, a scavenger hunt, Zumba, line dancing in Handy Park, roller skating, a Grizzlies watch party at Wiseacre, and more. You can make your own schedule and classes are walk-up so no registration required. 

See the full schedule at memphisadventures.com/fieldaze and a quick schedule below. Also, Fieldaze will coincide with the last weekend of the annual Downtown Dining Week—more info on that coming soon.

Is that enough going on for y’all!?! My favorite things about Fieldaze, at least looking forward to it are: 

a) hopefully it will be beautiful cooler fall weather

b) everything is basically outside and seems to have room for social distancing! 

c) it shows off that memphis has a ton of things to do and places to enjoy outdoors, something we’re not really known for but we should be
