Palladio will have an outdoor sidewalk sale under their tent for home decor, furniture, arts, and more at their location in Cooper Young.

2. A History Of Yellow Fever, Zoom, Friday through Sunday, various times, $10, all ages
Elmwood Cemetery is absolutely crushing it when it comes to online events. They’ve been giving us interesting history lessons all through quarantine and they’re doing it again this weekend with a poignant presentation on yellow fever in Memphis. There are online events on Friday morning at 9 a.m., Saturday at 3 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m.

3. Lucero Virtual Family Block Party, Online, Friday – Saturday, 7 p.m. – 11 p.m., $15 single day/$20 two-day, 18+
Lucero’s annual block party is going virtual as the Memphis-based Southern rockers stream two nights of concerts live (and alone) from Minglewood Hall. The first night is going to be 100% requests.

4. Twilight Tours: DINOS After Dark, Memphis Zoo, Saturday, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., ages 5 and up
The Memphis Zoo is hosting guided tours of their DINOS exhibit and some night animals this Saturday evening. Capacity is limited and preregistration is required.

5. Southern Heritage Classic REWIND, Online, Saturday, 7 p.m., free, all ages
The annual football game and cultural festival honoring Tennessee State University and Jackson State University is postponed until 2021, but you can relive the excitement of 2017’s amazing matchup via live-streaming on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.
