Mummers Mardi Gras Parade
Each year, the Mummers Mardi Gras Parade on Main Street in Manayunk is your chance to get up close and personal with the Philadelphia Mummers String Bands!
The daylong celebration will not only provide excitement for Manayunk but will generate exposure and raise money for the mummers, one of the greatest and oldest traditions in Philadelphia. This event produces a full day of family-friendly activities such as photo opportunities, giveaways and much more. Meet the mummers after the parade at their restaurant "clubhouses" for the day and enjoy performances, food, drinks and activities for the whole family.
There is no stronger celebration than the Mummers Parade on New Year's Day, which originally inspired ADVENT to develop a new tradition supporting the Mummers String Bands. Mummers Mardi Gras joins the very best of traditional Philly Mummers history, combined with New Orleans pageantry, for an event unlike any other.
