Here Comes the Neighborhood: MemFix Transforms Crosstown (for a Day)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | November 12th 2012 704 1

During MemFix, food trucks and vendors filled the Sears parking lot, bands played on the building's loading dock, empty storefronts along Cleveland were filled with pop-up shops, art was sold out of vintage bread trucks and a puppet dispensed love advice from a cardboard booth.

MemFix, Memphis, Tenn.

The event, which was held in Crosstown (between Ovterton Park and North Parkway) on Saturday brought hundreds of people to my neighborhood, an area that's right on the edge of being amazing, a place that's full of promise.

Inspired by last year's New Face for an Old Broad, the Crosstown Arts crew created a street fair that turned Cleveland into an ideal urban street, if only for a day.

Here are some photos from the event:

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
