Stax to the Max Festival
Stax Museum of American Soul Music: 926 E. Mclemore Ave Memphis, TN 38106
For the third year in row, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music is taking it to the streets with its "Stax to the Max Festival" - an all-day, outdoor, FREE music and arts festival. This year’s event, billed as "ArtsMemphis Presents Stax to the Max," takes place this Saturday, April 27, from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
In July and December of 1973, Elvis recorded three albums at Stax Records. The albums include "Raised On Rock," "Good Times" and "Promised Land," which produced four Top 20 hits on the charts. This year’s festival, held behind the Stax Museum, features all-day live music, arts performances, vendors, nonprofit booths, food trucks, children’s activities and more, plus visitors from all over the country and even Canada participating. In celebration of the Stax Museum’s 10th anniversary in 2013, the event promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
