New location at Liberty Park Fairgrounds

Due to ongoing construction at the festival’s usual home, Tom Lee Park, this year’s event will take place at the Liberty Park fairgrounds. the Beale Street Music Festival 2022 will be installed at the fairgrounds in an area bounded by Hollywood, East Parkway, Central and Southern. The Fairgrounds setup will include the usual three main stages plus the blues tent. The fairgrounds will offer the normal concessions and merchandise stands, but the slightly larger space will also allow organizers to bring in a giant Ferris wheel – which will host rides for free – to add to the atmosphere.
