Start your New Year off right at the biggest party in Memphis! World-famous Beale Street, home of the blues, and birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, offers live music, dancing, fireworks, great food and drinks, plus thousands of your closest friends to help ring in the New Year!

Thirteen bands will be rocking the stage at Handy Park, plus music and food and drink specials in the bars and nightclubs covering three blocks. Just before midnight, enjoy the 10-ft Gibson guitar drop from the Hard Rock Café and fireworks show!

One of the day’s earlier events features the invitation to Bury Your Blues, whereby locals and visitors are asked to bring any of their “blues” and throw them into an open coffin on Beale Street. This unique aspect reflects the “making a new start” in the New Year.

The Beale Street Merchants Association has seen crowds of up to 50,000 people in past years! This is a family friendly event, however for visitors under 21 adult supervision is required for certain time frames. Visit their website for more information.

Say goodbye to 2014 and welcome 2015 on Beale Street this New Year’s Eve!
