East Memphis is the hub of the city's cultural activities, and many of them happen in the Colonial Acres neighborhood. Especially in the spring and summer, the areas parks and spaces - both outdoors and indoors - come alive with highly attended festivals, celebrating various aspects of the arts and culture.

The Memphis Italian Festival, held annually in May or June, is one of the most popular of such events. For three days, Marquette Park becomes a hotspot for traditional Italian music performances and locally-made artisanal products inspired by the old world, as well as arts and crafts and an Italian cooking contest.

Events for the two festivals are held primarily in the nearby South Main Arts District.

Recreation at the parks
