Here's a post from what I've seen today.

by Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 3:02pm

Memphis in May officials are conferring regularly with appropriate agencies to keep abreast of the concerns for potential flooding in Tom Lee Park. The agencies include the Emergency Management Agency, National Weather Service, and U. S. Army Corp of Engineers. The Beale Street Music Festival will not be affected by the flooding occurring around the Mid-South area.

However, the prediction that the river will crest at record levels around May 8, 2011 does cause concern for the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest. The Festival has contingency plans in place for certain emergent issues and is reviewing and analyzing all reports and forecasts and continuing to maintain vigilant contact with local authorities. An appropriate and expedient plan for the event will be announced when all known factors have been carefully reviewed. At present, we are planning for another exciting and successful World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.


When pressed to elaborate if they'd lean toward relocation or rescheduling in the event of flooding, they simply responded that they're considering all options.
