In the fall in Tennessee, it goes like this.... "ITTTTTTT'SSSSS FOOTBALL TIIIIIIIIIMMMMEEEE IN TENNESSEE!" HOWEVER, in the spring, it's FESTIVAL TIME in Tennessee! Order early and be prepared!

When springtime hits Memphis, that means its also time to celebrate Memphis and the South with festivals galore! Its never too early to plan ahead and get all of your custom partyware for each event. 

April comes in strong with the Annual Overton Square Crawfish Festival, now in its 21st year! Overton Square has made a huge comeback over the past few years with the addition of some great new restaurants like Local Gastropub, Babalu, and Belly Acres, and thriving new bars including Lafayette's Music Room, and Bar Louie. This makes "the Square" a perfect location for tents lining the sidewalk and folks lining up at the tents to suck some heads and pinch some tails (let's just hope its only CRAWFISH tails that get pinched, ha!). 

For the sloppy, messy job of eating crawfish and all of the accompaniments, nothing works better than our heavy soft airlaid napkins and guest towels. These absorbent napkins and guest towels will withstand any amount of wiping and are some of the most absorbent napkins we sell; PERFECT customized with a sponsor name or team name. Matching stadium cups are a must and are the perfect festival souvenir and advertising mechanism!

We head right into Memphis in May and the MIM World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest (#WCBCC). Not only do we supply George Dickel's VIP tasting tent with 2,500 12 oz red solo cups for their famous bartenders and road show tasting they do at MIM WCBCC, we supply hundreds of 32 ounce (SUPER SIZE) stadium cups with matching durable round plastic and premium plastic plates and custom napkins for barbecue cooking teams themselves emblazoned with their own team logo and custom art. Talk about kicking it up a notch and making a lasting impression with some judges.... FORGET those flimzy paper towels. Those guys are gonna remember who had the SWAG!

Right after Memphis in May, Memphis gets geared up for two more major celebrations: Memphis Italian Festival and its more sophistocated carnival of the season, more aptly referred to as  "The Party with a Purpose" or Carnival Memphis. With 10 grand krewes participating and young and old alike involved, the action and the fun never stops during the month of June.

For Carnival there are "Cups for EVERY Purpose" of COURSE using each krewe's custom artwork! There are large 20 oz ROADIE foam cups that the King and Queen must have to accompany their outings, there are hard clear plastic cups for the parties the krewes throw to reveal their royalty, there are shatterproof/frost flex cups for the royal brunches and luncheons, there are neon plastic shot glasses for those rave theme parties that are thrown by those (ahem) YOUNGER krewes, for souvenir throwing during the parade, nothing pleass a crowd like our awesome color changing stadium cups! Of course there are custom printed napkins and guest towels, coasters, stir sticks, matches and even plates adorned with the crests and emblems of the krewes to go along with the cups and basics.

For Memphis Italian Festival goers, an invite to a private team "tent" usually means a FREE stadium cup to take home along with some wonderful authentic Italian food to go along with your beverage of choice! This is a must do yearly event for everyone who wants to enjoy good food, good company, great music and a great atmoshere!
