The West Memphis Tourism Website is a great resource for information designed to help our visitors! Please visit the link above. 
Tourists often enjoy visiting when West Memphis holds its many festivals. Those include the Gumbo Fest in April, the Fourth of July Freedom Fest and Firework Show, Taste of the Town in August, the Arkansas Flatlander Metric Century bike ride during fall, and the annual Christmas Parade and Christmas Tree Lighting in December. There is also a full season of sports tournaments and horse shows.

With over 1450 gaming machines, Southland Park Gaming and Racing features live greyhound racing onsite throughout the year and simulcast out-of-state races, as well as table games like blackjack, Texas Hold ‘Em and Omaha tournament poker. Some of the region’s best musicians perform at Southland Park’s newly-renovated Juke Joint, echoing a time when Eighth Street was called “Beale Street West.” Visitors will also love the dining options, including the New Orleans-inspired steaks at Bourbon Street Steakhouse and themed daily offerings at the World Market Buffet that include Surf N’ Turf Fridays and Crab Legs Saturdays.


For fans of fast-paced attractions, visit the Riverside International Speedway, the oldest continually operated dirt track in Arkansas with a variety of race car classes such as Midget race cars, sprint cars, and stock cars.
