We’re here for the fireworks and food—and most importantly the fun that a three-day weekend in Memphis has to offer!
where to see fireworks
It’s baseball with a BANG! The Memphis Redbirds are bringing folks together for three full days of cookouts and colorful KABOOMS as they take on the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimps (lol)! There will be all-you-can eat buffets each night, plus an assortment of freebies, like ice cream sandwiches on Ice Cream Sunday.
The Well at Church Health is a wonderland where kids can explore, play, and learn—and at 10:15AM on Friday, July 1st, your little one could be making something to light up their life.
The King lit up the stage, so it only makes sense that Graceland‘s lighting up the sky.
In addition to featured festivities like The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Concert, Gospel Brunch, a screening of Elvis and the USS Arizona, a Private BBQ Dinner, and more, they’re capping off the weekend with a free, family-friendly party on Sunday where the fireworks will fly high over the red, white, and blue [suede shoe] mansion.
Since Mud Island is getting a makeover, Memphis River Parks has partnered with the City of Memphis, Oakview Group, Liberty Land Stadium, and the Downtown Memphis Commission to host the first, and the city’s official, Fireworks Show at Liberty Park!
It’s free for all to attend (and park!) and the lineup of events include live music from local musicians like Life, Explicit & Marcella & Her Lovers, plenty of playtime activities for the kids like face-painting, carnival games, and a moving showing of National Treasure—plus Pronto Pups and food trucks.
The big bang begins at 9PM.
Their annual extravaganza is back at the Bartlett Performing Arts & Conference Center from 6PM-10PM. The evening will kick off with music by Kevin and Bethany Paige, and the Bartlett Community Concert Band as participants sprawl out on the lawn or grab grub from local food trucks.
Once the sun goes down, the sky will be lit, so make sure you secure a good seat for the show.
