The third annual Mempho Music Festival is this Saturday and Sunday at Shelby Farms Park.
In addition to a stellar lineup of music, the festival organizers have arranged for a curated assortment of tasty food and beverage offerings for festival attendees.
Food will run the gamut from fast, hand-held snacks to complete meals to delicious desserts. A number of restaurants will also provide vegan and vegetarian cuisine.
“Food brings people together,” said Kayleigh Reeves, Mempho Food & Beverage Manager. “We wanted to create a gathering spot for our patrons.”
Memphis favorites Corky’s Bar-B-Que, Grisanti 9DOUGH1 and MemPops will be offering their specialties. Vendors such as Peace Love Quesadillas, Rice Rice Baby, and Island Noodles are also part of the dozen offerings that will be available.
The festival will have two main food areas, each located near the stages.
All the food vendors are located near bars and the stages so guests can quickly get back to the music after dining.
In addition to traditional concessionaire vendors, Super-VIP attendees and Luxury Box ticket holders will be able to experience meals catered by Memphis chef Jimmy Gentry of Paradox Catering.
In addition to lunch, dinner and daily snacks, Gentry said he plans to offer late-night munchies as well.
Late night, he will be serving flatbread pizzas, a version of a Soul Burger and his signature version of hot “901” chicken.
Mempho Music Festival will also feature a festival App that will not only guide attendees through the entire festival experience, but also feature Order Ahead beverages at the two main general admission bars.
Headlining the festival are The Raconteurs and Brandi Carlile, along with Wu-Tang Clan, The Revivalists and Margo Price.
This is Jennifer Chandler with The Weekly Dish. Bon Appetit!
