Welcome back to the best place to find things to do in Memphis, friends. ⛄️
December, how have you been? SO good to see you at last this week for everyone’s favorite time of the year. Holidays are officially here with us. 🎄 Downtown Memphis could not be better with the plans that are upcoming to celebrate the holidays this season.
Two big names will be hitting downtown Memphis with their sound, an opportunity to get that craft on, and an event that helps you channel your inner Santa. All of these events to be topped off with the grand lighting of a well-known atrium within the Crosstown Concourse walls. All of that + more things to do in Memphis this weekend! Let’s get right into it:

Grab the Tennessee Whiskey to your Strawberry wine: the man himself will be making his way to the FedEx Forum on this fine Friday night.
Dec 3 | 7:00pm–8:00pm
FedEx Forum | 191 Beale Street, Memphis, TN 38103
A free event to the public to come out and enjoy the lighting of the Atrium Holiday Lights once again this year! The lights will shine down on musical performances, seasonal refreshments, and children’s activities to enjoy.
The Flying Saucer Emporium invites you + your finest Santa costume to come out and join in the Stumbling Santa Pub Crawl! Your admission “price”? Unwrapped toys! Porter-Leath gathers toys for underprivileged children to gift on the holidays to make sure every child gets the holiday experience we all deserve to have.
Jason Mraz | Cannon Center
We’re trying to be chill, but this event is so hot that we’re melting. 🔥 Because THE Jason Mraz will be making his way to the Cannon Center in our very own Downtown Memphis to soothe us with the fine acoustics + the voice that’s been serenading us since the 2000’s. You in?
