Memphis Music and Heritage Festival

Memphis Music and Heritage Festival

The Memphis Music and Heritage Festival starts tomorrow. Five stages will showcase the cultural diversity of Memphis.

MEMPHIS – ( A Memphis cultural stew will served this weekend. The Memphis Music and Heritage Festival opens for business Saturday morning. 

Friday, stages, lighting and scaffolding we're being put up along Main Street.

Everything including Aztec dancing, gospel, jazz, hip-hop, opera and Brazilian dancing will be showcased on five stages. Two of those will be inside with air conditioning when it gets hot. 

There will be a cooking stage across from the Center for Southern Folklore during the day but by night it transforms into a DJ booth. 

Judy Peiser started the fair in 1982 and says its time to celebrate you. 

“It’s the one time in the year where you can really celebrate yourself. You can celebrate where you live and be proud of it,” Peiser said.

They expect over 40,000 people over the weekend long event. 

Vendors and stages will stretch along Main Street from Peabody Place to Barboro Alley. 

The free festival runs Saturday from 10 am to 11pm and Sunday from 11 am to 11 pm.
