The greatest street festival in Memphis is celebrated the last Friday of every month! The galleries and shops are open, there's music on the street, and always surprises. Trolley rides are free from Beale to G.E. Patterson, so get on board and join the festivities.

It’s been known by a few names, and has had a different kind of focus through the years. The South Main Trolley Night has gone by different monikers through the years: Friday Art Trolley Tour, South Main Trolley Tour and Art Trolley Night to name a few. And through the years the district has shifted from a quiet neighborhood of art galleries and apartments to today’s mix of restaurants, bars, boutiques, small businesses, apartments, condominiums, galleries, a bookstore, coffee shop and more.

South Main is a fascinating place to explore - you won't believe how much there is to do in this 1-square-mile neighborhood!  You can spend an entire day and night in South Main and not get to experience a fraction of all there is to see and do.  The Memphis Farmers Market, Railroad and Trolley Museum, National Civil Rights Museum, and Orpheum Theatre bring nearly 1 million people to South Main every year, along with events like Trolley Night and River Arts Festival.  The streets are alive with art, trolleys and historic architecture at every turn.  Enjoy serene, beautiful views and walks of the nearby Mississippi River or go nuts and dance the night away at Earnestine & Hazels and The Rumba Room. 

Trolley night is from 6-9pm and is free and open to the public. Follow Trolley Night on Facebook for details on the event every month.
