Looking for something to fun to do around town? Here are a few options—some virtual and some in person!

Cooper Young Porchfest (April 17)

We know y’all have been begging for live shows to bounce back, and we’ve got one on the horizon! Cooper Young Porchfest will feature 40 bands playing on 20 porches in the Cooper Young neighborhood in celebration of the coming of spring and the ability to reconnect after a long, live music-less year. The shows are happening from noon to 6PM, and there’ll also be a Community Yard Sale held from 8AM-1PM.

If you’re coming to Porchfest, everyone attending should be conscientious of COVID-19 protocols — please practice masking and social distancing. All of the musicians are volunteering so bring cash to tip them or do so through Venmo/CashApp through the handles listed on the map above.

Keep an eye out on Cooper Young’s IG, Facebook, and Twitter for any updates before the festivities!

Yoga on the River with Yoga Kickback (Every Tuesday from now until September 28th)

If you’re not sure where you placed your zen, you can find it along the Mississippi as The Yoga Kickback leads weekly outdoor sessions in the River Garden every Tuesday at 5:30PM! Make sure to bring your own yoga mat, towel, and water. All levels are welcome, and the classes will also be streamed via Facebook Live if you’d rather practice from the comfort of your home.

Make sure to sign this waiver if you’re participating in-person!

Central Station: Live at the Tracks (Every Thursday from April 15th-May 27th)

Need some music to go along with your Thirsty Thursday? Head to the Central Station to start your weekend off early with some good people who are bringing good vibes. The tunes will be blaring from 6:30PM-9:30PM.

Take a look at the lineup of performers:

Salsa at Sunset (April 17)

When the sun goes down, those hips start swingin’ as Cat’s Ballroom invites you to join in on a FREE salsa dance class in Memphis River Parks. There’s no need to register. Just show up, and prepare to move like the Mississippi!

The Memphis Farmers Market is a city favorite every year. If you want to find fresh produce, prepared dishes, plants and more, this is your one stop shop.  It opens for the season on April 3, and will be open every Saturday through the fall.

Just Roo It. Kangazoo Experience (From now until October 31)

After a 27-year hiatus, Memphis Zoo is thrilled to welcome back red kangaroos!

Experience the outback and meet one of Australia’s largest marsupials, the red kangaroo. Guests will stay on the designated path, but the kangaroos will have free range so guests may take pictures if they come across any of the animals.

Purchase tickets here.

That’s not all there is! Mark your calendars for:
