Enjoy an entire day of family entertainment on the banks of the Mississippi River. Spread out a blanket, bring the lawn chairs and pack a picnic, because this is an all day family reunion!
The day opens with music from local performers, followed at 6pm by a spectacular air show from the Commemorative Air Force, sponsored by Delta Medical Center. The show features vintage WWII and concept aircraft such as the Corsair, Hawker, Stearman and Russian Yak. Watch as the pilots perform amazing aerial stunts and multiple high-speed fly-bys.
As the sun sets, the stage is set for the smooth sounds of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra performing. As the sun goes down, the skies light up with a spectacular fireworks show, sponsored by Bank of America, orchestrated in part with the Symphony performance.You’ll look over the river in awe of this magnificent show! AutoZone Sunset Symphony…a day of family fun in the park…an exciting Air Show by the Commemorative Air Force…a legendary performance the lush sounds of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra…and fireworks illuminating downtown Memphis.
