Just because New Year’s is over, it doesn’t mean that the Mummers are done partying (they never truly stop). With Mardi Gras coming up on Tuesday, the Piazza is throwing a Philly-flavored celebration that has a taste of both holidays: Mummers Mardi Gras.
On Saturday, Mar. 1, 3 – 9 p.m., the Mummers are taking over the NoLibs entertainment square with performances by Fancy Brigades and string bands as well as live DJs, circus-like performances, and much more. There will be plenty of options to keep you well fed and full of drink – Sweetbox Cupcakes, Mac Mart Truck, and Street Food Philly are delivering the goods in addition to selections of beer, wine and cocktails available at the Piazza’s many fine restaurants.
Tickets start at $15 for general admission and are $75 for VIP, which gets you a spot in the heated tent, access to an open bar, perfect seats for viewing the stage performances and photo ops with the Mummers. Funds raised will go towards supporting participating Mummers crews.
