Might we Suggest an Itinerary?

  • Start New Year’s Eve with a daytime visit to the Fancy Brigade Fest Finale and the Behind the Scenes look at the making of the Philadelphia famous New Year’s Day parade, indoor at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
  • Watch the final preparations and rehearsals for the parade. Learn about our history, and preview themes for this year’s performances on a guided tour with a veteran brigade captain.
  • Return to the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 11:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day and top off your experience with an indoor reserved seat to the excitement and action of the 2 ½ hour Fancy Brigade Finale Noon Family Show. Participate in a large Strut on the show floor and have a meet and greet with fancy brigade members in costume at the end of the show (11:30 AM only).
  • Complete your day with a private party with your friends, clients, or members by reserving a private party room overlooking the show floor.
  • Extend your visit and enjoy Philadelphia’s many historical and cultural attractions.
