Mummers Day Parade
January 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Ring in 2023 by attending the annual Mummers Day Parade on January 1! Don’t miss the time-honored tradition that brings together more than 10,000 costumed adults and children as they march from City Hall south on Broad Street to Washington Avenue. The Mummers Parade is a family-friendly celebration that has delighted visitors from Philadelphia and beyond for more than 120 years.
The Mummers Parade kicks off from City Hall, and proceeds south on Broad Street to Washington Avenue. Thousands of parade goers line the street to watch the revelry, cheer on the performances, and celebrate the New Year.
After the Fancy Brigades finish the parade route, they head to the Pennsylvania Convention Center to put on two elaborate Broadway-style performances for ticket holders. Shows are at 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
The parade is free to attend, but tickets for bleacher seating at the City Hall Performance Zone are available to purchase.
