MEMFix: Edge is a one-day, community-driven effort to imagine an invigorated Edge District, roughly defined as the area within a quarter-mile radius of the Marshall Avenue/Monroe Avenue intersection. MEMFix events have been used throughout Memphis to temporarily activate streets, blocks, and neighborhoods, creating vibrancy and demonstrating new possibilities for our communities.
Because the Edge District is historically known as a place where things are MADE – music, beer, guitars, art, food – we want this MEMFix to be a celebration of that same spirit. We will work with the dedicated local businesses, residents, and community stakeholders in the Edge to develop temporary re-designs of Marshall Avenue and activation of various vacant storefronts, while presenting live music, mobile food and retail, and other programs and activities to represent the potential of this area to visitors from Memphis and beyond. We anticipate a crowd of 8,000+ people during the event, which is scheduled for Saturday, October 18 from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
In many ways, the modern Memphis was born in the Edge neighborhood thanks to artists and entrepreneurs taking a chance on something new. We believe this same approach can bring about the Edge’s rebirth. If you want to take part, please complete the application and submit it to Info@LivableMemphis.org by Sept. 12.
