The Fancy Brigade Mummer’s Celebration is a long standing, Philadelphia New Year’s Day tradition, featuring competing troupes trying to outdo each other with elaborate, bright costumes and creative dances.
Feel the rythym as each troupe performs with props and moving sets. So much more than a show, this spectacle of music, dancing and celebration is the perfect way to start the New Year!
Originating as a street celebration in the 1800’s, Mummer’s Day is the country’s oldest folk festival. From your reserved seating inside the Philadelphia Convention Center, witness this "fanciest" of celebrations - a cross between a Broadway show and Mardi Gras!
Finish the day with an early dinner at The London Grill, a landmark in Philly’s quaint theater district.
