Things To Do In Memphis: Delta Fair and Music Festival

by Melissa Thompson


The Delta Fair is a classic. It's a week, August 30th – September 8th, of midway games, rides, livestock and homemaking competitions, exhibits, and more.

The Delta Fair & Music Festival brings the communities of Memphis together to celebrate the area’s rich art, music and culture. In addition to the lineup of homegrown musicians performing across a diverse range of genres, the festival offers a wide variety of entertaining attractions like a motorcycle stunt show, live chainsaw sculpting, a Mexican rodeo, a mini tractor pull, laser tag, magic shows, a demolition derby and more. The 4-H and FFA Children’s Barnyard features kid-friendly exhibits and an opportunity to feed live farm animals, and one of the festival’s highlights is the Banana Derby, where Capuchin monkeys are the jockeys in an adorable dog race.

Did you know that the Delta Fair & Music Festival has more LIVE music than any other event in Memphis?  Over 150 acts on 3 stages!  They strive to balance the lineup to showcase national acts as well as our very own home grown world class artists who have their roots growing deep into the Delta soil. 

What would a visit to the fair be without filling up on the good old-fashioned fair food! You’ll find everything from Pronto Pups to Funnel Cakes and everything in between! Whatever you decide, we can all agree that state fair foods are the best!

Located at 7777 Walnut Grove Rd, Memphis, TN 38120. Call (901) 213-7469 or visit www.deltafest.com for additional information.
