Main Street West Memphis, part of Main Street Arkansas, is a non-profit organization designed to help develop and revitalize the downtown commercial district of West Memphis.

What you’ll find at the annual event is a sampling of outstanding food and desserts prepared by local chefs, caterers and bakers. Oh, and it’s your “responsibility” to try everything, especially the desserts, because attendees get to vote for the “Best Dessert” of the event.
