Things to Do in Memphis

Memphis, it’s the time we’ve all been waiting for… springtime has finally arrived and in full swing. As the temperatures start heating up in our city, we’ll be looking to spend a lot more time in the outdoors with you. 

We have some fresh things to do in Memphis this weekend ranging from month-long outdoor happy hours, a show tour making its stop at the Orpheum in Downtown Memphis, a Caribbean-themed event by the river, and a Memphis native to be featured at the birthday bash of the season.

As always, here’s your reminder to be safe and to do your part in the prevention of COVID-19, follow all business regulations and wear a mask! Protect yourselves and those around you when attending any events in Memphis and neighboring cities!
