The first-ever Ignite Memphis Food is April 12th at 7pm.

Tickets include beer, wine, and tons of local food samples.


Now we're cooking.

Twelve food-obsessed Memphians are taking the stage for a night of fast-paced talks about our city's food and food culture. Get your ticket to hear what they have to say.

Ignite is a nationally syndicated presentation series with a unique twist: 12 speakers fire off 20 slides in 5 minutes each, for an evening of inspiring, rapid-fire talks.

This time, the talks are all about food and food culture. So we found 12 of Memphis's most passionate people to share their favorite food stories, ideas, and insights.

Beer and wine is included with your ticket, along with tons of samples from local food entrepreneurs.

Ignite Memphis Food is April 12th, 2018, at Playhouse On The Square.
