MEMFix: The Pinch District


On Saturday, April 11th, the fifth MEMFix event brings pop up shops, vendors, street scape improvements, entertainment, kids’ activities, carriage rides, and more to the Historic Pinch District.  The Pinch has attracted a lot of attention recently with the opening of Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, recent infrastructure improvements due to the Main to Main/Big River Crossing project connecting Downtown Memphis and Downtown West Memphis across the Harahan Bridge, and with a $1.2 billion expansion of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. These developments have led to a renewed discussion of the need for a plan to guide the future of the Pinch District

At MEMFix: The Pinch, Livable Memphis hosted a book signing with Mike Lydon, co-author of the book Tactical Urbanism, which documents a growing movement and acts as a guide for DIY (do it yourself) civic projects. Livable Memphis and ioby also hosted sessions with leaders of nearly 80 crowd-funded projects from around Memphis - you can check them out here.
