Get Under The Big Top At Cirque du CMOM

Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 25th 2018 6665 0

The Children’s Museum of Memphis hosts one of the best parties in town every year, Cirque du CMOM. This year it’s on Saturday, February 3 from 7 p.m. to midnight. (Get tickets here.)

Cirque du CMOM 2018 will be bigger and better than ever. Here’s why:

  1. It’s vintage circus themed. You know you have an outfit in mind already.
  2. The Grand Carousel is still brand-spanking-new, and rides are included.
  3. I’m giving away a pair of tickets ($300 value).

Head over to to buy your tickets today,.

Why should you spend $150 per ticket? Because our Children’s Museum receives approximately $0 from our local government, and they provide an awesome place for kids in our city to learn and play. And you get access to a legit party that honestly sounds like a crazy wedding with more food and less wedding. Let’s support CMOM if we can.

To win: leave a comment on this blog post AND/OR leave a comment on the Instagram post.

I will do a random drawing on Tuesday, January 30th at 9 a.m. and post the winners on this here blog post.

Congrats to our winner, Jennifer H!

Cirque du CMOM 2018 has:

– an open bar
– more than 20 local restaurants handing out food
– a live band (it will be lit, 100%)
– a silent disco and dance floor
– Amurica Photo booth
– late night DJ

Y’all, they’re even giving out Krystal’s and Gibson’s donuts at the end of the night. What?!

Don’t forget you can enter twice – comment on Instagram and comment on this blog post.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
