A new, free pop-up beer garden in Memphis Park (formerly Confederate Park) starts Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m.
Fourth Bluff Fridays will feature The Tapbox, a mobile beer vendor with local brews from Wiseacre, High Cotton, Memphis Made, and Ghost River. Food trucks on-site will include Stick 'Em, Monkeytrain Grazing Co., and SayCheese. The Mighty Souls Brass Band will play a show from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The event will run through 8 p.m.
The monthly, family-friendly event is a joint effort by the City of Memphis, The Tapbox, the Downtown Memphis Commission, and the Riverfront Development Corporation. The concept was inspired by a park activation project in Philadelphia called Parks on Tap, which featured 14 different parks for 14 weeks in the summer.
The Memphis version will stick with Memphis Park for the immediate future. The next Fourth Bluff Fridays at Memphis Park is scheduled for September 9th, and another is set for October 14th.
