Stellar music was spread across three stages, with attendees soaking in the positive vibes at each. Amid the performances, the Knowledge Quest Kids Zone delivered with games and other fun activities for kids of all ages.

Strollers took advantage of the availability of locally grown fruits and veggies courtesy of the South Memphis Farmers Market pop-up. Also dotting the stroll ways were 25-plus craft/vendors and food trucks.

And on top of all of that was free entry to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music.
