On a surface level, it’s the commemoration of an area code—but at its core, 901 Day monumentalizes Memphis, and most importantly the Memphians that have created the culture.
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!“
