365 Things to Do in Memphis #272: River Arts Fest

365 Things to Do in Memphis #272: River Arts Fest

Riverside Drive in downtown Memphis will turn into a giant artists market and street fair for this year's River Arts Fest. Assignment #272 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to spend a day at the festival.

At River Arts Fest, you can definitely shop for art from tons of artisan booths, but the event isn't just about shopping. There will also be hands-on art stations, live music stages, and tons of food from local vendors

About that live music: organizers do everything they can to pack the festival with local acts of all kinds. Tickets are $10 for an adults' single-day pass ($15 for a two-day pass), $5 for kids ages 6 to 12, and free for kids ages 5 and younger.

River Arts Fest is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
