For 42 years, Memphis in May has brought the world to Memphis by saluting the cultures of 38 different countries. But this year, instead of saluting a country, Memphis in May will honor a city. A city with a rich heritage and colorful history. A city whose culture has impacted the world, and is poised for an even greater brighter, future. For 2019, Memphis in May’s annual salute will honor our hometown, the city of Memphis!

Join the celebration as Memphis in May Festival salutes Memphis Tennessee. We’ll salute our innovators and creators. The attractions and soulful spirit of Memphis that draws millions from around the world to our city.

Memphis in May joins the city’s bicentennial commemoration with a new event: Celebrate Memphis on May 25, 2019! We’ll be honoring our city’s rich heritage and colorful history as we ring in a new century of soul. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. Blankets, lawn chairs and outside food, beverages and coolers are permitted for this FREE event.

In anticipation for this event, Memphis in May just released the entertainment and programming lineup for the Celebrate Memphis on May 25.
