MEMFix site plan

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.

  • When: Saturday, October 18th, 10am-8pm
  • Where: Edge District (Marshall Ave/Monroe Ave)

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 – this MEMFix will be a celebration of that same spirit.

They 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.
