Initially a suburban community on the railroad line, Broad Avenue and the surrounding area, Binghampton, was annexed by Memphis in 1919. Once a thriving neighborhood built around the railroad line, Broad Avenue soon became the life and heart of the city. As the economy around the railroad gradually slowed, so did the business and energy in Binghampton. However, with the help of many young professionals and artists, the area is on its way to reclaiming its title as a center in Memphis. Today, Broad Avenue boasts a myriad of art galleries, studios, hip bars, many of Memphis’ hidden gem restaurants, and even houses Memphis’ Greenline Headquarters.
To showcase all the exciting things happening, Broad Avenue is hosting Demo Days this Saturday June 15th. An afternoon filled with spectacle and manifestation, many artists will demonstrate several art forms such as soap making, sandblasting, stenciling, and much more. There will be kid’s activities, live painting, and drawing. Three Angels Diners will offer a 10% discount with proof of a purchase from a Broad Avenue merchant. Food, wine, and beer will be available for purchase at Broad Avenue’s restaurants and bars.
