The Beale Street Music Festival 2015
Every year the festival recognizes a different country. A week of events and publicity, starting the day after the Beale Street Music Festival, is dedicated to this country and it showcases the foods and culture of that nation. While International Week provides a learning experience for the community at large, the core is a comprehensive educational program for area youth in public and private schools throughout Memphis and Shelby County. The goal of International Week is for area students, by the time they graduate from high school, to have had the opportunity to experience the customs and cultures of twelve different countries. Countries recognized in the earliest years– Japan and Germany – have been featured twice. Perhaps more important are trade delegations which visit here and have high-level introductions to suitable trade partners.
