Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

If you're going to be mourning the all-too-soon death of Prince at age 57, you might as well do it with eight and a half million of your best friends. Check out the tribute events taking place in honor of the fashion icon over the next few days, which run the gamut from fitness classes to Purple Rain screenings to good old-fashioned dance parties — we've mapped them out geographically from north to south.

We'll be adding more events in as we hear of them. Know about one not listed here? Let us know in the comments section or by emailing the tipline.
