Can I buy alcohol on holidays in Tennessee?05.26.18
Can I buy beer, wine and spirits on Memorial Day, July 4 and Labor Day?
Summer is upon us and we hear that burning question: Can I buy alcohol on holidays at Tennessee liquor stores? Yes and no.
Here’s the facts. The law recently changed to allow liquor stores to sell beer, wine and spirits on Sundays and many federal holidays, including:
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- July 4
- Labor Day
No more stocking up on Friday and Saturday before a big summer holiday weekend, like this upcoming Memorial Day. You can buy your wine and spirits on both Sunday and Monday.
Same rules apply to wine at grocery stores.
Alcohol still cannot be sold on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. You are supposed to be at church or home with family, not boozing it up.
Surf’s up and Madonna’s smash summer song “Holiday” from 1983 comes to mind:
Everybody spread the word
We're gonna have a celebration
All across the world
In every nation
