For the past three years, LSI Graphics, has been the signage and graphics partner for Memphis in May and has helped them continue to host these high-quality events.

This year, specifically, we produced and installed graphics on everything from stage banners, to fence mesh, and corrugated booth numbers.

Beale Street Music Festival

Upon entering Beale Street Music Festival, guests are greeted by branded banners overlooking the Memphis bridge. Once inside the park, guests are guided by fence banners towards the admission gates, ensuring everyone is on the right path to entry.

From here, massive stage banners were tailor-made for each of the music stages, highlighting art created by George Hunt.

World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest

The world’s largest barbecue cooking contest would not be complete without signage that spoke to the heart and soul of Memphis.
