Happy Friday, Memphis! Here are the five things you won’t want to miss in Memphis this weekend. If you’re looking for 4th of July ideas, check out this post.

IMG_0372Wondering why there are Vespas everywhere in Memphis? Amerivespa is having their annual conference and they chose Memphis to spend the weekend. You’ll probably see them around town.

1. South Main “Trolley” (Art) Night, South Main, Friday, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., free, all ages
Shops and galleries will have their monthly open houses tonight, some will have refreshments, and there will be live music here and there.

2. Memphis Zombie Walk, Handy Park, Friday, 7:30 p.m., free (donations accepted), all ages/kid-friendly
The tenth annual Zombie Walk steps off from Handy Park down Beale at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. So, zombify yourself anyway you like (or put a duct tape X on your shirt to become a zombie victim), grab a canned food or money donation for the food bank, and head downtown. If you get there early (starting at 4:30 p.m.) you can get help with makeup. Read more details and tips here.

3. Juneteenth Black Arts Festival, Slave Haven Underground Railroad (826 N. 2nd St.), Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., all ages/kid-friendly
Celebrate Juneteenth with a festival featuring entertainment, farmer’s market, kid’s area, soul food cooking contest, and more.

4. Memphis City Football Club v. Chattanooga Football Club, Mike Rose Stadium, Saturday, 7 p.m., $12, all ages/kid-friendly
Cheer on the home team National Premier Soccer League Memphis club this Saturday night. Join the Rogue Squadron (the supporter’s club) for tailgating before the game, then the gates open at 6:15 p.m. and Memphis takes on the number-1-ranked Chattanooga at 7 p.m. Details.

5. Gregg Allman at Live At The Garden, Memphis Botanic Garden, Sunday, 6 p.m., all ages allowed
The Live at the Garden concert series continues with rocker Gregg Allman on Sunday evening. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Read more here.

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.
