Summertime is in full swing here in Memphis, and though the temperature continues to climb, there are still a ton of exciting activities to check out.

From watching live music to a Hawaiian-themed happy hour, there’s plenty to do in these parts as the weather gets warmer. Here are some things to do in Memphis this summer that will keep you busy and entertained.

Attend the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival

Historically, warm weather brings out the best of our city’s talent, and 2018 is set to be no exception. This year, the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival will be attended by more than 30,000 people eager to enjoy two days and five stages of the most exciting music in town.

That said, the festival isn’t solely about music—in fact, you can immerse yourself in Memphis arts, crafts, exciting storytelling and more. Mark your calendar for the first weekend in September.

Enjoy happy hour at Tsunami

For most Memphians school lets out for the summer, but work does not. But you can still kick back with friends after a long day at the office! Did you know local hot spot Tsunami is undergoing extensive renovations ahead of a new and exciting Hawaiian-themed happy hour that reflects the spirit of resting after work? Called Pau Hana Time, this seasonal event will run from June to November. Feel free to visit Tsunami for tasty bites after work and a range of refreshing drinks at reduced prices.
