RiverArts Fest

Riverside Drive
Memphis, TN 38103
Between Jefferson and Union

RiverArtsFest is a street celebration of fine arts and fine local music with live artist demonstrations and hands-on art activities for all ages! More than 180 artists from around the country and right here at home gather to exhibit and sell their latest works of original fine arts in what's become the largest outdoor juried artist market and urban street festival in the Mid-South.


The award-winning organization, Mighty Lights, currently illuminates the Big River Crossing and is visible from Martyrs Park to Fourth Bluff as well as elevated locations throughout Downtown Memphis. The glow doesn't stop there, Mighty Lights will now light up the Hernando de Soto bridge, and the illumination to music happens to be the same Saturday as the RiverArtsFest!

On Saturday, October 27th, the festival will offer FREE entry after 5pm, providing the best location to view gorgeous art, groove to local music and celebrate the beginning of the biggest nightly light show on the Mississippi River!
