From 2011 to 2017 Resource helped produce the annual RiverArtsFest, a three-day celebration of fine art from around the country, plus three stages of local entertainment, on historic South Main Street in Memphis.
The festival relocated to its new site on Riverside Drive in 2018.
Resource makes sure the festival operates, beginning with filing all needed permits, and including managing street closures and traffic diversions, building an electrical grid and water delivery system on site, managing security and making sure that every tent, table, chair, generator, portajohn, bike rack, and stage deck lands where it needs to when it needs to. When the artists and vendors roll in, we ensure that everyone has every tool they need for a successful festival, including the operations staff and volunteers!
Resource also books all the live entertainment for the festival, from the three-stage days on South Main to 2018's single stage to 2019's planned double stage. Over the years, the festival has been lauded for presenting an eclectic selection of what is happening in Memphis music, something Resource is very proud of.
This is a great event, always held the fourth weekend of October. Add it to your calendar!
Over 30,000 people attend each year.
