Thank you for your interest in vending at the Memphis In May International Festival. Our annual month-long festival includes two ticketed events. In 2022,  Beale Street Music Festival & the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest will be held in midtown at the Memphis Fairgrounds because of construction in Tom Lee Park. We'll be back on the river in 2023!

The applications for each 2022 event will be posted here in November 2021. Please check back to apply!
