Cooper-Young’s annual Porchfest was last Saturday, April 15, from 12-6 PM, and the neighborhood posted a big Thank You to Memphis for making it another great year in this ‘young,’ 3-year-old event.
Cooper-Young! Memphis! Porchfest this past Saturday was so beautiful and we couldn’t have done it without all of y’all — hosts, attendees, and of course THE BANDS! Thank you all so much for coming out, sharing your houses, sharing your talents, sharing your time, and creating this gorgeous afternoon. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
To this we say, No, Thank You CYCA for dreaming up this dreamy event.
