Attended the Moon River Music Festival here, great outdoor venue. Lots of treed areas, bench seating and areas to sit on the grass. Lots of restroom facilities also, and free parking.

All summer and fall long great music is played. 95% are free to the public although they pass a bucket. You can bring your picnic lunch and coolers. One of the best things in Memphis.

This is a really awesome venue. Best sound of any concert I've been to. Pack a cooler or check out some of the awesome food trucks. We enjoyed the small intimate feel and were able to meet the band after the show.
