Philadelphia Mummers Mardi Gras will be held on Saturday, March 1st from 3pm-9pm at the Piazza at Schmidts (1001 N. 2nd Street Philadelphia, PA 19123).
ADVENT is producing a benefit for participating groups of the Philadelphia Mummers, Philadelphia Mummers Mardi Gras. The Mummers are hoping to create another annual Philadelphia tradition revolving around the Mummers. With 10,000 active Mummers, it’s time we get Philadelphia on the map for holding one of America’s BEST Mardi Gras parties.
For years, Philadelphia’s New Year’s celebration has been revered around the country. The uniqueness of something so outrageously different, fun, and unifying. An entire city, from all different walks of life, comes together on a cold winter day, for one simple reason…… MUMMERY.
With a strong appreciation for tradition, ADVENT felt that they could fill a void in the Philadelphia event landscape, while raising money to support the deeply rooted Mummers organizations.
Philadelphia Mummers Mardi Gras is an event that will allow spectators the access they have always wanted; a 6 hour party with Mummers representing all divisions. The event was designed to benefit the Mummers but to incorporate other live music and acts to relieve them of their constant marching and performing. This event will recognize all that the Mummers do for Philadelphia just 2 months after their big parade day.
We have the Fancy Brigades and 4 of the Top 5 Philadelphia String Bands performing, as well as cover band Split Decision and several DJs. We also have got jugglers, magicians, facepainting stations, a live mural artist, body painted dancers, stilt walkers, a photo booth and more.
