Plan Your Summer: the Memphis in May Festival

Memphis in May

This year’s Memphis in May event features a special salute to Columbia this year, including performances, food, and more. The festival will also include a 5K and half-marathon, the renowned barbecue cookoff, and a special music festival. With more than 70,000 guests expected, this is one festival you won’t want to miss.

Beale Street Music Festival

The Beale Street Music Festival will kick off events, starting May 3 and running to May 5. Buy a three-day pass, single-day ticket, or special VIP passes to get backstage. Guests include the Dave Matthews Band, The Killers, Cardi B, and Khalid, performing on four stages. With a wide variety of genres and acts, the music festival is welcoming for all music lovers.

International Week and 5K and Half-Marathon

Many residents recognize the festival for its International Week and the 5K and half-marathon. You can learn about Columbia this year, as there will be live shows, lectures, exhibits, Columbian food, and more. The 5K and half-marathon event on May 25 also draws a crowd, and it features a post-race party for participants and spectators to enjoy.

World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest

Finally, the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest will be held from May 15 to 18 — an even named as the most prestigious in the business by USA Today. There are more than $115,000 in prizes that will spread over categories like best ribs, shoulders, and sauce, as well as a whole hog and “anything but pork” contest.
