New Year, New Events in Memphis

A Story By

Ready for the weekend? Here are the best things to do in Memphis this weekend! Enjoy music, sports, games, and fitness right here in our great city. One of our favorite things about Memphis is how diverse of an offering our events are and this weekend is a great showing of that. There is always something for everyone going on. 

As always, be sure to take proper precautions, wear a mask when needed, social distance, and wash those hands. We’re all in this together and we all want this new year to be bright and safe.

1. Elvis Presley's 86th Birthday Celebration

Celebrate what would have been Elvis’s 86th birthday at his home, Graceland, right here in Memphis. If you’ve never been, now is a great chance to see the home and learn a little more about the musical history of our great city.

On the 86th visit for a birthday celebration dinner in the guest house ballroom followed by a screening of “Blue Hawaii” in the theater. What better way to appreciate then King of Rock and Roll than by celebrating his birthday in his home. Visiting Graceland is one of the most classic things to do in Memphis!
