On January 1, 2015, the 2015 Mummers Parade will start at 15th and Market near Dilworth Park.  The judging will be done at that location.  Besides the judging area, there will be 2 other performance areas: The Union League of Philadelphia and at the intersection of Broad St. and Carpenter St.

Gone are the popular drill locations at Broad St. and Pine St. and at Broad St. and Washington Ave.

A Jumbotron will be set up at Broad St. and Carpenter St. and the new Dilworth Park with video coverage of the parade. The Mummers will use the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and John F.

After the judging,the clubs will head south around City Hall to Broad Street and continue South to Washington Avenue with some clubs still heading east to Second Street for the unofficial “Two Street Parade”. The Fancy Brigades will join the parade outdoors before they complete their own judged performances at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Tickets are on sale for MummersFest and the 2015 Fancy Brigade Finale at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. You can purchase tickets on Comcast Tix or at the Philadelphia Visitors Center.

The new parade route applies to all Mummers divisions except the Wench Brigades. The Wenches Brigades will start at Broad St.and Washington Ave and head North towards City Hall. They will continue around the East side of City Hall and line up on JFK Blvd or the Ben Franklin Parkway waiting to be judged.  From there, they will then join the rest of the parade and march South on Broad St. back to Washington Ave. You can purchase bleacher seats to view the performances at the judges stand by calling or stopping by The Philadelphia Visitors Center.
