Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Get Tickets Now: Bluff City Brunch Festival

A new festival coming in May celebrates everything we love about our favorite meal of any week: BRUNCH.

The Bluff City Brunch Festival scheduled for Saturday, May 30th is your chance to try some of the best brunch items Memphis restaurants have to offer while enjoying scenic views of the river from Fourth Bluff Park.


Your ticket includes entry and 12 drink tickets for you to indulge in brunch beverages like Bloody Marys, mimosas, sangria, beer, and cider. Those Bloody Marys will be coming at you from a 30-ft. Bloody Mary Bar featuring Old Dominick Vodka, Papi Joe’s Bloody Mary Mix, and tons of toppings like bacon and olives to build the drink of your dreams.

Dr. Beans Coffee will be on hand with an Irish Coffee Station, and Electrolyfe Juice Bar is bringing a fresh-squeezed watermelon mimosa station. Reveled Spirits will also have Bloody Marys and other delicious cocktails made with their shrub mixers, like a berry basil mimosa.

Brunch food samples will be purchased separately for $3 – $5 each, paid directly to each restaurant. While you’re nibbling, drop a token to your favorites so they have a chance at the People’s Choice Award. A full list of participating restaurants will be announced soon.

Brunch tunes will be provided by Avon Dale and DJ Sledro. And when those brunch beverages kick in, you can feel free to get goofy with a selection of life-size games to play, including Hungry Hippo!

The Bluff City Brunch Festival was created by Cristina McCarter, the entrepreneur behind City Tasting Tours, co-founder and co-owner of Feast & Graze, and organizer of the Craft Food & Wine Festival, which returns for its second year on June 21st. Proceeds from the Bluff City Brunch Festival benefit A Step Ahead Foundation, which provides access to “voluntary, long-acting, reversible birth control” so that women can be empowered to plan for the life they want to build.

“When thinking about the brunch festival I instantly considered A Step Ahead Foundation. They have done so much for women including myself and I figured this would be a great way to give back to them since they’ve given so much to me.’’ —Cristina McCarter
