Mummers Mardi Gras will be held on February 20th, 2016 from 11AM-1PM. All 17 String Bands are scheduled to parade down Main Street in Manayunk.
The daylong celebration will not only provide excitement for Manayunk but will generate exposure and raise money for one of the greatest and oldest traditions in Philadelphia, the Mummers. This event produces a full day of family-friendly activities such as face painting, photo booths, and much more! Meet the Mummers at their “Clubhouses” for the day and enjoy performances, photo-ops, and food and drink!
There is no stronger celebration than the Mummers parade which originally inspired ADVENT to develop a new tradition supporting the Mummers organizations. Mummers Mardi Gras joins the very best of traditional Philly Mummers history combined with New Orleans pageantry for an event unlike any other. As we spearhead our 3rd year, we look forward to giving the spectators unprecedented access to the String Bands and keep the tradition of Mummery alive in Philadelphia!
