To eat there will be food trucks serving everything from BBQ nachos and funnel-cakes to hushpuppies and fried Oreos. For health-conscious visitors, Balewas Vegan Gourmet and Cosmic

The festival benefits a local nonprofit, GrowMemphis, with a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales, so invite your friends if you win. Even if you don’t, come out and support the cause! Last year Bristerfest raised over $3,000 for GrowMemphis to help build and support urban community gardens to ensure all Memphians have access to fresh, healthy, local food. Bristerfest has plans to become the most environmentally friendly festival in Memphis.
