Memphis Music and Heritage Festival – Labor Day Weekend

I don’t know if there is another festival in the world that brings together the diversity of talent we experience every Labor Day weekend at the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival.  The festival features big-name acts on multiple stages, all in a tight venue at South Main and Peabody Place.

On September 5 and 6, expect to see  Blues, Gospel, Rock, Rap, Mariachi, Bluegrass, Folk, Rockabilly, and R&B performances; and that’s just for starters.  The festival also features cooking demontrations from chefs of many local ethnic cuisines, story telling from those who have made their mark in Southern Folklore, vendors, food, and plenty of activities for the kids.
