Mike I'm hoping that you'll be able to attend tomorrow, rain or shine, so you can give us a detailed report of event, aromas and tastes for those of us that can’t be there. Hoping for good weather!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I have always been under the impression that a person couldn't "just attend" Memphis in May but had to be a participant in the competition. Meaning that you couldn't just head to Memphis for a vacation and hope to purchase/eat some of the goodies from the event.

I've got some good friends down there and if I'm wrong, I'd better start planning my vacation time for next year.

You can buy tickets at the gate: Memphis in May Link

Found another site that tells when it opened to the public:

More than 97,000 people attended the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest to see, smell and experience the legend of Memphis Barbecue. 1999 saw the introduction of Rib Row, an area that offers championship barbecue to the public.
