Crosstown Concourse Opening Day Celebration

3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Crosstown Concourse
1350 Concourse Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104

Join us for the opening celebration of Crosstown Concourse, scheduled nearly 90 years to the day of the original Sears Crosstown grand opening in August 1927. This celebration of history and rebirth will showcase the organizations and businesses that courageously believed in and dedicated themselves to the creation of this one-of-a-kind vertical urban village.

Drop by and take a look beyond the steel and the stone to discover and celebrate a million square feet of community, a place where diverse interests combine to form new connections so we may become better together. This is a moment to celebrate Concourse, the Crosstown neighborhood, and the tenacity and creativity of the city as a whole.

A full schedule of events with live music, dance performances, art exhibitions, a Concourse documentary screening, tenant open houses, and more is below. There will be cash bars in multiple locations throughout the building.
