For one day in April, part of the Pinch District (along North Main between Jackson and Overton Avenues) will transform into a bustling, lively neighborhood during the next MEMFix event. Go there Saturday April 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to check out pop-up shops, entertainment, and of course, food.

More details are on the way, but in the meantime, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 11. MEMFix has already done events in Crosstown (nearly 10,000 people came out for that one, go here to see pictures), the University District, South Memphis, and most recently, The Edge. Click through the slideshow below to see photos from that one.

In case you’re wondering, MEMFix tries to show what a neighborhood could be like after more involvement and development. There are usually temporary improvements, like bike lanes, fresh coats of paint, and signage, plus pop-up shops and lots of art, food, music, and other interactive things that reflect the personality of the neighborhood.

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.
