A Day of Merrymaking

Bungee wallIt’s back! Overton Park Conservancy’s family festival, A Day of Merrymaking, will return this year on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Bring the kids and dogs to the park’s Greensward for a day of entertainment, fun activities, and delicious treats.

We’ll have music, food trucks, local vendors, arts and crafts, and lots of water activities to help you beat the heat. Our beer garden will be serving brews courtesy of Memphis Made. Hollywood Feed will be on hand with all kinds of fun for the dogs to celebrate the fifth anniversary of opening Overton Bark.

Suggested donation for this event is $5, which benefits Overton Park Conservancy.

A Low-Waste Event
This year, we’re aiming to make A Day of Merrymaking a low-waste event. With a grant from TVA, we’ll be offering reusable cups at the Conservancy booth and in the beer garden. Clean Memphis and Get Green Recycleworks will be on hand assisting attendees with recycling eligible items.

What If It Rains?
The festival will be held rain or shine except in the event of thunderstorms or lightning. Keep an eye on this page or on our Facebook and Twitter accounts for information about the festival.
