Enchanted Forest + More Things to do in Memphis

A Story By

Welcome back to the best place to find things to do in Memphis, friends. πŸŽ„Β 

Just like you, we’re watching this countdown fly as Christmas comes closer to us this season. Speaking of, is anybody else playing Christmas music already? Can you believe that Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is You hasn’t hit 1 billion plays yet? A conversation for another day, because it’s time to break down this week’s Weekend Guide.Β 

This week’s round-up includes a lovely walk-through to spark the Christmas spirit in you! We also found a cute holiday activity for those spending their first holiday together or starting a new tradition with loved ones. This holiday show is making its comeback for the season in our Downtown Memphis’ very own Canon Center for a limited amount of performances. In Midtown, get a first-dibs on this experience that lives to support artists in the most beautiful city around. And lastly; a feast dedicated to fine wines + a good time.

At the Museum of Science and History (aka Pink Palace), brings you to the mezzanine of the Pink Palace to deliver the family tradition of the season: The Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees! Children + Adults will be able to walk through the exhibit with beautifully decorated trees + recognizable characters to be seen within. Plus… an opportunity with Santa! πŸŽ…Β  This year, you must buy your ticketsΒ in advanceΒ to reserve your spot for the exhibit.Β
