Memphis Music, Food & Craftsmen All Together On Memorial Day Weekend
If you believe Memphis is a city that deserves to be celebrated every day, you'll love our 901-themed party on Memorial Day weekend! From enjoying a local brew next to the Mississippi River and bouncing around in knockerballs, to taking in some local music talent and closing out the festival with a fireworks show, #901Fest has something for the whole family.
We'll announce the 2019 festival date in August, stay tuned! In the meantime, make sure to follow along on our Instagram page.
