The Beale Street Merchants Association is proud to announce the annual Beale Street Wine Race. The event will take place on Sunday, April 26th, 2020 at 1:00PM on historic Beale Street. Winners will receive prizes that include cash, trophies, and media recognition.
Come enjoy Beale Street with your staff, participate in exciting events, and compete for cash prizes with employees from other restaurants and clubs throughout the city.
For waiters and waitresses, this is the Super Bowl. Each year the Beale Street Merchants Association searches for the most skilled waiter and waitress teams in Memphis. This search culminates in the Beale Street Wine Race.
Local restaurants and bars will compete against each other in a series of four exciting events including the opening parade costume contest, the Queen of the Vine contest, the Beale Street Grape Stomp, and The Great Beale Street Wine Race. The winning team of servers and bartenders in each contest will receive cash, prizes and media recognition!
Due to COVID-19, all Beale Street events have either been cancelled or postponed. We are currently working with our local government and health officials to determine when we can have special events again. As soon as we are able, we will put the new dates and times of the events on our social media channels. Stay safe!
