Events that only happen once a year are inherently more memorable than others… But the event still has to be entertaining. Memphis Madness delivers year in and year out. That’s why it wins every year. And not just by a little bit, either. At almost 50% of the vote, not another event even came close. Maybe there are just too few annual events that are that good in this city or maybe it’s just that the beginning of Tiger basketball is what this city lives for year. The city should operate on a different calendar then the rest of the world. Memphis Madness is our Christmas. It should reflect that on our calendar.
Memphis Madness, First Place: 49.54%
Redbirds 4th of July Fireworks Game, Second Place: 14.59%
Grizzlies MLK Day Game, Third Place: 10.94%
Best Write-in Vote: July 4th
