How to Trolley Night

Trolley Night in downtown Memphis is the place to be on the last Friday of every month. Starting at 6pm, this lively event showcases the best of what the city has to offer, from unique shops and delicious food to live music and refreshing drinks. Here’s your guide to making the most out of Trolley Night!

1. Ride the Trolley

Kick off your night with a ride on the iconic Memphis trolley. It’s a fun and scenic way to travel through downtown. Hop on the trolley for only $1 per ride!

2. Shop Local

Many local shops stay open late for Trolley Night. Check out Stock and Belle for chic apparel and home goods or Feelin’ Memphis for cool Memphis-themed gifts. Supporting local businesses is a great way to connect with the community.

3. Jam to Live Music

A person with long blonde hair sits on a stool playing a guitar on a small stage, bathed in the glow of string lights. Posters of past Trolley Night events add charm to the room, while another guitar rests against the wall in the background. The scene feels like something out of Memphis good news.
