Memphis in May International Festival has taken shape to what it is today by over 40 years of practice. Events have come and others have left, but the mission has remained the same - to promote civic pride in a welcoming atmosphere.
The core of Memphis in May International Festival is made up of four events: Beale Street Music Festival, International Week, World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Great American River Run. These events are scattered throughout the month and make each May more memorable than the last.
