MemFIX: Cleveland Street
Saturday, November 10, 10 am - 10 pm
Free Bike Valet: South of Cleveland Street Flea Market
Car Parking: Lot at Autumn & Claybrook and the surrounding neighborhood
Working with local businesses, residents, and community stakeholders the project will re-think the street, activate vacant shopfronts, and change the character of the two block area along Cleveland from Overton Park to Galloway for one weekend.
Come experience a transformed Cleveland Street this Saturday at Memfix. In addition to a two-block makeover with bike lanes, over 50 pop-up shops, galleries, artist vendors and food trucks, there will be so much to see and do. Drive, walk, or better yet, ride your bike to the Complimentary Bike Valet, just south of our friends at the Cleveland Street Flea Market. The market will be open for business with special vendors outdoors for the day.
So many thanks to all of the planning partners, participating neighborhood businesses and residents, sponsors, and volunteers who are making this effort a reality.
