Seasonal Happenings

Seasonal Fun

Here, you'll find information about activities and programs that only take place during a specific season, like Canoes + Cocktails during the summer, fun fall events and holiday fun in the winter!

All proceeds from these happenings benefit Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline.


It’s back!  Canoes + Cocktails is returning with the best views of Memphis sunsets from iconic Hyde Lake! Enjoy a guided evening sunset paddle on the lake followed by socially-distant cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, yard games and music at Hyde Lake Pavilion! Rent a canoe or kayak or BYO-Boat. Canoes + Cocktails is a 21+ event and is a fundraiser for the daily operation of Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline. Every Friday through September!
