MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – A non-profit organization is putting everything there is to love about the Bluff City on display.
Thursday night is the annual Exposure event hosted by the organization, New Memphis. It’s designed to get people plugged in on what’s happening in the city.
Exposure has been around since 2011 and it has continued to grow each year.
For the first time, this year Exposure will be held at the FedEx Forum. The event was previously held at Autozone Park. On Thursday night, more than 150 local organizations will come together under one roof.
“Exposure is a celebration of all things Memphis. It always happens on or around 901 Day and what we try and do is activate all of the talent that we have here in Memphis. We plug people in to a bunch of different organizations from arts and culture to fitness and outdoors to social and really kind of activate them,” Nora Bisaccio, New Memphis event specialist, said.
There will be fitness clubs, volunteer opportunities, and more. Some of the represented groups include: Memphis Zoo, Ballet Memphis, Innovate Memphis, Weightless Aerial Company, Literacy Mid-South, and representatives from all local sport teams.
Bisaccio said they want Exposure to grow love for the city while also exposing the groups that make Memphis what it is.
“I think it’s great to foster a love of Memphis whether you’re new to the city and you’re looking for ways to plug in and grow your love for the city, or a longtime Memphian that’s looking to refresh that love. It’s really great for everybody,” she said.
Organizers said they’ve encouraged the organizations to be interactive with their set ups rather than just have a booth. For example, Memphis Escape Rooms will set up a mock escape room at Exposure.
During the event there will be live music, entertainment, a scavenger hunt, and local celebrity bicentennial games.
The event is free attend. Parking is free at Gossett Motors Garage. The event runs from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
