Also check out the guide to live music for September, the big list of Memphis fall events, and the list of beer festivals and Oktoberfests.

1. Mid-South Fair, Landers Center, through Sept. 29, $10 adults, $5 seniors and kids 5-12, all ages
The Mid-South Fair is the spot for good ol’-fashioned country fun, and it opens for the season on September 19. Enjoy food, rides, games, live entertainment, talent contests and more, but you better not miss Lance Bass from NSYNC (just Lance though) and your boy Aaron Carter! Check out more info and the top 5 things to do at this year’s fair in this post. 

2. Southern Junkers Vintage Market, Memphis Fairgrounds Pipkin Building, Friday – Saturday, $5 for adults at door, $8 online, free for kids 13 and under
Fairground nostalgia is the theme for this year’s Southern Junkers Vintage Market. Many vendors will be on hand with antiques and art. Buy enough “junk” for your trunk then treat yourself to some carnival food. There will also be food trucks and a vintage car photo op. 

3. Latin Fest 2019, Overton Square, Saturday, 3-9 p.m., free, all ages
If you want to experience some of what really makes America great, check out the Cazateatro Bilingual Theatre Group’s celebration of Latin American food, drinks, music, art, and culture in Overton Square during Hispanic Heritage Month.

4. Memphis 901 FC v. Saint Louis FC, AutoZone Park, 7 p.m, $15 and up, all ages
Yes, soccer is still going, but you only have a few more chances to cheer on the Memphis boys at home.

5. Spillit Center Stage, Comeback Coffee, Saturday, 7 p.m., $20, 18 +
Memphians tell their hilarious, heartbreaking, and inspiring stories at monthly events and compete for the title of best storyteller. This month, Spillit continues its partnership with local criminal justice reform nonprofit Just City. Seats are first come, first served, so get there early.


A few more ideas;

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.
