Mummers Parade

January 1 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm


Where: 1400 John F Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19107


This only-in-Philadelphia New Year’s Day tradition dates back to 1901 and includes 10,000 adults and children wearing feathers and sequins while dancing to music and parading along Broad Street from Philadelphia City Hall, site of competition among the Comic, Comic Wench and String Band divisions, to Washington Avenue. The indoor Fancy Brigade Finale competition at the Pennsylvania Convention Center consists of Broadway-inspired music-and-dance routines for prizes and bragging rights. Tickets for bleacher seating at City Hall and for the Fancy Brigades will be available at the Independence Visitor Center (IVC); stay tuned to the IVC’s official website for more.
