Happy Friday, everyone! Here are the five events you won't want to miss in Memphis this weekend.


The last bits of fall from @rhodescollege on Instagram.

1. Delta Groove Yoga Festival, Overton Square, Friday – Sunday, $50/weekend, $25/day, all ages, including some classes for kids

Delta Groove is hosting their first annual yoga festival with back-to-back classes in different styles of yoga, a yoga dance party, Yoga Olympics, and "random acts of yoga" around Overton Square. All proceeds benefit the Memphis Child Advocacy Center.

2. 2013 VESTA Home Show, St. James Place Subdivision at Forest Hill Irene and Winchester, Friday – Sunday, $10/adults, $5/kids, all ages

Some of the best Mid-South homebuilders and interior designers have created six dream homes, full of all the bells and whistles. Do some daydreaming/window shopping while these houses are open for touring. The show is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays, and runs until December 1. 

3. Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention, Memphis Hilton, Friday – Sunday, $15 per day / $35 for the weekend

The Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention is three glorious days of geekery. There will be panels (including "Harry Potter Studies"), costume contests, visiting artists and writers, and a concert with voice actor/rocker Jess Harnell and The School of Rock. Craig Brewer will be giving Q&A's and signing autographs, and also there will be something called a LEGO derby. Someone please take pictures of this and tag them #ilovememphis on Instagram or Twitter. 

4. The Dixon's Fall Family Day, Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Dixon Gallery and Gardens, free, all ages, great for kids

Kids can make fall-themed crafts, see Hattiloo Theatre perform scenes from Charlotte's Web, and watch local artist Frank D. Robinson give demonstrations, and everybody can see the Dixon grounds for free.

5. Just Red: the After Party, Memphis Botanic Garden's Goldsmith Room, Saturday, 9 p.m. to 12 a.m., $75/person or $125/couple, ages 21 and up
