901 Day is Here! Here’s Your Guide for Celebrating:

901 day presents 24 hours to let your city pride show!

We can comment on Poplar’s potholes any other time. Let’s enjoy some hater-free fun for a day—because this celebration only comes once a year, and who better to make the most of it than you, a tried and true believer of the Bluff City’s magic. 

lucky for you, there are many ways to do 901 day right!

  • Want to make your rounds to all of the eateries we’ve been blessed with? You won’t be hangry, that’s for sure!
  • Want to volunteer your time or donate your dollars to your favorite local org or nonprofit? That’s incredible!
  • Want to dance it out at a spot where a local DJ is doing their thing? Don’t step on nobody’s forces!

You could learn some history, support a local business, go on a photo walk, slice a pool, stream Memphis music, purchase that one-of-a-kind piece made by a local artist… I think you get the picture.

We’ve got so much to be proud of here, and this celebration only comes once a year. To make the most of 901 Day 2022, we’re putting together a guide that’ll help you do the day justice—because this is our city, this is our day, and as Blocboy JB would say, “Look Alive!
