Halloween Everything!


Indie Memphis Film Festival, Multiple Venues, November 1-7, ticket and schedule info TBA
The annual Indie Memphis Film Festival will no doubt be another amazing weekend of filmmakers, panels, awards, and lots and lots of films. This year, the Fest is expanding to include venues in downtown Memphis, midtown, East Memphis, and Collierville.

India Fest 2016, Agricenter International, November 5, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., price TBD, all ages
Head to the Agricenter to shop in an Indian bazaar, try authentic Indian food, and see authentic dancing, hear music, and enjoy plenty of stuff for the kids to do.

U of Memphis Tigers Men’s Basketball, FedExForum (home games), begins November 14, ticket info TBA
The Tigers start off the 2016-2017 hoops season with a home game against UT Rio Grande Valley. Season tickets are on sale here, and individual game tickets will go on sale soon.

Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention, Hilton Memphis, November 18-20, $15 – $35
The Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention is three glorious days of geekery. There will be panels, gaming, costumes (and a costume contest), a goth ball, and visiting artists and writers.

Save the Date: The Grilled Cheese Festival, the judging of which was one of the most epic things I’ve ever done, is happening again on December 11. Mark your calendars.

Know of any more awesome events happening in Memphis this fall? Submit them to the ILM Events Calendar (very important) and I’ll add them to this list. I’ll be putting up a guide to Halloween in the Mid-South later in September.

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.
