A Standing Ovation to our Cooper-Young neighborhood and to all the residents, artists, creatives, and businesses who make our community so enjoyable to live here.  It’s your turn to shine as we showcase your creativity and handwork to Memphis and beyond.

That weekend we spotlight and celebrate 70+ homeowners, renters, and businesses who spend hard work, time, and money to make their outdoor spaces lovely for everyone.  Our garden walk attendees appreciate the inspiration they gain while peeking into our eclectic, urban gardens.  Visitors will see chickens, bees, composting, edibles, water features, and outdoor theatre, she + he sheds, and stylish designs. Add in educational booths, speakers, demo gardens, art vendors and artist studios, a guided bike tour and a shuttle for a full garden extravaganza weekend.
