Curtis Givens’ All White Affair 2022: Thousands attend annual bash

Thousands of people gathered at Mud Island River Park in Memphis on Saturday night for one of the city’s annual festivities.

The outfits varied from blouses to dresses, but all the guests had one thing in common – they wore white outfits. This is a mandatory rule of admission to the All White Affair hosted by Curtis Givens of CGI Entertainment – a staple of the Memphis party scene for more than two decades.

The party was billed as “the most anticipated party of the summer” with an estimated 2,500 to 3,500 people expected to attend on Saturday. People took photos in their all-white outfits at the “Memphis” sign at Mud Island River Park. Others enjoyed drinks and food while listening to music in the seating and VIP areas.

The All White Affair kicked off at 4pm and the park began to fill up with revelers arriving fashionably late close to 6pm with the sea of ​​white attire visible across Mud Island.

There were plenty of cooling tents for people wanting a temporary respite from the weather, with the heat index regularly over 100 during the late afternoon at outdoor events. Cooler tents were conveniently located near the various food trucks and tent bars.

“People deserve credit,” Givens said of his success. “They make me who I am. With their support, it makes me stronger and stronger. I give all the credit to the people, not to myself.”
