Taste Of Memphis Hot Wing & Music Fest 2017

The Taste of Memphis Hot Wing & Peace of The Street Music Festival's 3-On-3 basketball game will be hosted by world-renowned actor and ex-NBA player Cylk Cozart, of basketball films such as "White Men Can't Jump," "Blue Chips" and others.


Everyone loves hot wings! This July 29th at Arthur Halle Stadium in Memphis, TN from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM, the 'Taste Of Memphis' Hot Wing & Music Fest 2017 will showcase the best wings that Memphis and the Mid-South has to offer, plus some great local music and sports. It's gonna be H-O-T and more fun than you can shake a WING at!

There will be music, fun events and an enjoyable experience that the entire family, kids and everyone can enjoy with a positive message of 'peace on the streets.'

Organizers of the event are hoping to push a message of not just hot wings, music and sports but also peace. "Being that the south has taken over the 'hot wing' scene, being also we [Memphis] are a city rich in music plus we're home to the Grizzlies, we'd like to believe mostly everyone in Memphis loves wings, music and basketball," they commented. "But we also want to promote a good cause, a message of peace on our streets."

The 2017 Taste of Memphis Hot Wing & Music Fest will be a 1 day festival with all events being held at the Arthur Halle Stadium including a hot wing team cooking competition featuring some of the best hot wings in Memphis and the Mid-South; the Taste of Memphis music festival featuring the Legends of Memphis Peace On The Streets Tour; and a 3 on 3 basketball competition.

Titled the "Legends of Memphis Peace on the Streets Tour" the music fest will feature live performances by some of Memphis hip hop's finest artists including legends Kingpin Skinny Pimp, Gangsta Blac, and DJ Squeeky with a guest performance by rapper Teflon Don.

The 3 on 3 basketball competition will be hosted by world-renowned actor and ex-NBA player Cylk Cozart, of basketball films "White Men Can't Jump," "Slam Dunk Ernest," "Blue Chips" among others.

The organizers said they purposefully planned all events on the same day for The Taste of Memphis Festival so that while people are eating some great local hot wings, they can enjoy some great local music and sports entertainment, all while promoting a positive cause.
