Who We Are
The secret society of Sphinx was certified as a Grand Krewe of Cotton Carnival in 1945. As the Krewe evolved so did the mission. Now members support Carnival Memphis’s selected children’s charities and promotion of business and industry in Memphis.
The Grand Krewe of Sphinx is made up of a diverse group of individuals who have come together to support the Mid-South and have fun. In addition to the philanthropic works, members never lose sight that one of the goals is always fun. Whether meeting for happy hour, or participating in various events sponsored by other Grand Krewes, members enjoy socializing among themselves, with members from other krewes, and anyone who is along for the ride.
What We Do
As a Krewe, and individually, we support other Grand Krewes by attending Presentations of Royalty, Krewe fundraisers and Krewes For Kids, the main fundraiser for Carnival Memphis. In addition to attending monthly meetings, Sphinx members meet for brunch, happy hour, music concerts and sporting events. We spiritedly give our best effort whether singing karaoke, performing skits, or just hanging out.
