Starting May 4, the city will welcome a month of education, music and barbecue with the annual Memphis in May International Festival. This year’s chosen country of honor is the Czech Republic.
The celebration kicks off May 4-6 with the Beale Street Music Festival. This year’s lineup includes Post Malone, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age and Love Light Orchestra. Another highlight is the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, May 17-19, featuring top barbecue teams and a big prize check.
The festival will culminate in the 901Fest, followed by the Great American River Run, on May 26.
