3. Dragnificent Variety Show, Evergreen Theatre, Friday and Saturday, box office opens at 7 p.m., $25, 13 and up
Help support the Friends of George’s theatre company and support improvements for the Historic Evergreen Theatre by attending an original comedy drag show at the theatre this weekend (or next – the show goes on March 20 and 21, too). Tickets are only available at the door with a limited number, so you’ll want to get in line before the box office opens at 7 p.m. Expect “outrageous fun, sketch comedy, talk and games hows, musical productions and campy performances”.

4. Amsoil Arenacross, Landers Center (Southaven), Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., Sunday at noon, $11 – $41, all ages/kid-friendly
Cheer on hometowner Josh Cartwright this weekend as he competes in the Amsoil Arenacross events at Landers Center. Cartwright, a native of Memphis, has been competing across the country in these off-road motorcycle races on exciting indoor courses.

5. Silky O’Sullivan St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Beale Street, Saturday, 3 p.m., free, all ages/kid-friendly
When your bar claims to make every day like St. Patrick’s Day, you’d better go buck wild for the real thing. In this case, Silky O’Sullivan’s delivers.  It’s festive, but family friendly. Go here to see my full guide of all the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations going on in Memphis this year.

Also going on this weekend is the American Kidney Fund’s Kidney Action Day at the Kroc Center on Saturday . There will be health screenings, cooking demos, and fitness actives, and the mayor will make an appearance. Another idea is the annual Seed Swap Day at the Cooper Young Community Farmer’s Market, which goes on Saturdays year-round in the First Congo parking lot from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Whatever you do this weekend, I hope you have a blast! Tweet at me @ilovememphis and tell me about it, or follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook for more ideas on how to love and enjoy our city.

You can always check the calendar for more events and ideas for things to do in Memphis. Have a great weekend and don’t forget to tag your photos #ilovememphis and they might show up here on Monday.
