There’s much to love about a trip to Memphis. There’s the culture, the history, the beauty, and yes, there’s the matter of fun. Indeed, if there’s one thing that Memphis has in abundance, it’s fun (OK, there’s also a lot of other good things, but you get the idea). And if you have any doubts, just take a look at some of the goings-on that we have coming up in October. In the latter part of the month, we have tequila festivals, movie screenings, and a street celebration. Now doesn’t that sound fun?

Tequila fest

If you’re a tequila fan, then do we have the festival for you. The Memphis Tequila Festival will take place on October 25 and will feature more than thirty tequilas. But it’s about more than the spirit: there will also be DJs, face painting, and a cash bar featuring non-tequila drinks. 

For the movie lovers

Movie lovers will want to check out the 22nd annual Indie Memphis Film Festival, which will take place from October 30 - November 4 at venues across the city. See one movie or more, the choice is yours -- they guarantee to be all good ones. 

Street celebrations

Who doesn’t love a street party? RiversArtFest will be two days of arty fun on Riverside Drive. Taking place October 26 and 27, there’ll be more than 180 artists from Tennessee and across the country.

After all that excitement, you’ll want to get a good night’s rest at the best hotel in Memphis. At the Best Western Galleria Inn & Suites, you’ll be conveniently located just 25 minutes from downtown. You’ll also be able to choose from a range of room types, so you can stay in the right one for you, and also enjoy amenities including a complimentary hot breakfast, free wireless internet, and a 24-hour suite shop.
