WLOK Stone Soul Picnic

September 3, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Part of the 2022 Orion Free Concert Series at the Shell.

The WLOK Stone Soul Picnic is one of the oldest and largest outdoor events in Memphis and the Mid-South, offering musical entertainment and fun for the entire family.

Sponsored by the Gilliam Foundation, the WLOK Stone Soul Picnic serves as a tribute to music-loving Memphians and their support for WLOK, which has graced the Memphis radio airwaves for nearly half a century. WLOK is Memphis’ first black-owned radio station and the city’s only black-owned FM radio station.

Generations have enjoyed the WLOK Stone Soul Picnic since it began in 1974, mostly because it’s an annual event filled with music, fun, and fellowship tied together by the heartfelt and uplifting sounds of pure gospel.

This year’s event will be on Saturday, September 3rd from 3pm till 9pm. Lineup will be posted later.

Food truck and entertainment for children will be at the Overton Park Shell throughout the event.
