1. Mid-South Fair, Landers Center, September 19 – 28, $12 adults/$6 kids and seniors, all ages
Head to the Landers Center (in Southaven) for the 158th annual Mid-South Fair to get your fill of funnel cakes, rides, more. It's a solid week of rides, games, MMA fights, talent contests, roller derby and carnival food. Bonus: admission is free on weekdays before 2 p.m.

2. Memphis v. MTSU, Liberty Bowl, Saturday, 6 p.m., $10 – $10, all ages
Cheer on the home team at this week's inter-state football battle at the Liberty Bowl, and support our Tigers as they come back from a great game at UCLA. Read my guide to this season right here.

3. John Paul Keith and Mark Edgar Stuart, Harbor Town Amphitheater (740 Harbor Bend Rd.), Saturday, doors at 6 p.m., $5 minimum donation, all ages – kid friendly
The River Concert Series, a new series of local music shows at the Harbor Town Amphitheater to benefit The Maria Montessori School. Similar to Rock 'n' Romp, these concerts are a fun way for grownups to enjoy great music in a place where the little ones are welcome. Beer from Wiseacre and food from Miss Cordelia's.

4. Star & Micey, Levitt Shell, Saturday, 7 p.m., free, all ages
There are free Levitt Shell concerts every weekend night for the next few weeks, and this Saturday's show is a must-see for Memphis music lovers.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
