Carnival Memphis 2020 carried on its tradition and mission of “The Party with a Purpose” but due to Covid 19, it was a reimagined week. The parties were postponed, but the Carnival Royalty, Princesses, Grand Krewe members, and the Boll Weevils masked up and rolled up their sleeves and worked together to help the community with these Carnival charities: Chickasaw Council, BSA Scouting Deserts in Binghampton, and RedZone Ministries in Orange Mound.

On Monday and Tuesday, Carnival Memphis sponsored two Mid-South Food Bank Mobile Food Pantries to support the Carnival Children’s Charities and feed the communities in need. On Wednesday, the Carnival Memphis Royalty and Boll Weevils held a “Carnival Cares Mobile Parade” to spread cheer at several retirement and local nursing home communities in the county.

“We made lemonade out of lemons,” says Ed Galfsky, Carnival Memphis Executive Director.
