Sat 18th to Tuesday 21st May

The attractions of Memphis seem to be well known - Graceland, Sun Studios, Stax, etc. I'm in Memphis for the first time on the above dates. Are there any days I should avoid in particular re the attractions e.g is Graceland especially busy on a Saturday so I should go on a Monday ? Just trying to aid my planning.

Any thoughts are welcome.

Saturday will be quite busy downtown as that's the last day for the barbecue contest. Of course, most attractions are going to be busier on weekends, but if you don't plan to attend the contest, I'd plan to visit attractions away from the main downtown area that day such as Graceland.

Saturday will be busy but most of the activity Saturday and Sunday will be breaking down and loading up in the competition site, maybe not so much in and around the Downtown attractions and hotels. Be sure to take a tour which ties the whole music story together and get some background on this historic city. Catch a sunset on the Madison or Peabody Hotel rooftop. Don't miss the Giant Pandas and state of the art habitats at the Memphis Zoo.
