Tent Mission STL is a non-profit organization run by a group of volunteers who provide crisis support and daily outreach during the COVID-19 pandemic, often working with the unhoused community of St. Louis. Their mission is to build relationships in the St. Louis community, while simultaneously working to navigate and circumvent failing social systems. Tent Mission works tirelessly to disseminate food, hygiene products, and information, with any financial donations going to mutual aid. Central to their mission is the phrase, “this is what community looks like”. Tent Mission seeks to bridge the gaps in our social welfare system, strengthening the spirit of St. Louis. It is for this reason that we chose Tent Mission to align with our theme of ‘Dream On,’ as they envision a future where St. Louisians have their needs met and can work to rebuild their lives from there.

Our Story

The ThurtenE Carnival is the oldest and largest student-run carnival in the United States and a long-standing tradition in St. Louis. Each year, the net proceeds from the Carnival are donated to a St. Louis area charity. The Carnival always creates new and exciting memories for all who share in the experience and unites the community. “Lot Week,” the week leading up to the Carnival, has been declared ThurtenE Carnival Week by the Governor of Missouri. During this week, the area around Francis Field at WashU is transformed into a playground for the imagination. ThurtenE Carnival traditionally attracts well over 80,000 people from both the Washington University and St. Louis community. This April 12th to the 14th, ThurtenE Honorary is hoping to make it the biggest and best carnival yet.

ThurtenE Carnival brings together over 50 student organizations at Washington University; from Residential Colleges, fraternities and sororities, to religious and ethnic organizations, participation in the Carnival is diverse and abundant. The teamwork of this variety of groups is what brings the Carnival to life. Fraternities and sororities build inspiring façades and perform original plays for children, while other student groups operate carnival games and food booths. These efforts contribute to making ThurtenE Carnival a truly unique event.
