How To Join The Mummers
Each Mummers organization has its own policies and requirements for things like age or musical experience, there are still plenty of opportunities to participate – even if you don’t want to dance, strut, or play an instrument in costume! For example, the Comic, Wench Brigade, Fancy and Fancy Brigade Divisions focus their performances around dance routines and costuming. String Bands have musicians, but they also have non-musical members (Marshals) who play key roles in constructing parade props and assisting performers throughout the year. Some good advice would be to spend a little time learning about the various Mummers Parade groups and individual clubs, and figure out which one best matches your interests. When you are ready, reach out to the appropriate group to find out about its member application process and requirements. Also,the Mummers Museum can help you find the right place for you to get involved.

What is the Mummers Parade?

Mummers celebrations in America date back to colonial times when the boisterous Swedish custom of celebrating the end of the calendar year with noise-making and shouting was combined with the tradition of the British mummery play. Reciting doggerel and receiving in return cakes and ale, groups of five to 20 people, their faces blackened, would march from home to home, shouting and discharging firearms into the air while burlesquing the English mummers’ play of St. George and the Dragon. Philadelphia, which had a sizable Swedish population, was the center of America’s mummers’ celebrations. Learn how the Mummers started in Philadelphia In 1790, Philadelphia became the capital of the United States, and President George Washington initiated a tradition of receiving “calls” from mummers at his mansion. In the early 19th century, the celebrations became so popular in Philadelphia that a city act was passed declaring that “masquerades, masquerade balls, and masked processions” were prohibited with threats of fine and imprisonment.

While the celebrations were quieted, they did not cease, and when the law was abolished in the 1850s, there had been no reported convictions.

In celebration of the American centennial in 1876, what had been an uncoordinated group of neighborhood celebrations turned into an area-wide parade featuring various mummers’ clubs. In 1901, Philadelphia’s city government decided to sponsor the popular parade, and 42 fraternal organizations received permits to stage a parade in which prizes were awarded for Costumes, Music, Choreography and comic antics.

The Mummers’ Parade continues to be a popular Philadelphia tradition.
