FANCY BRIGADE ASSOCIATION

Twelve Clubs. One Family.

OUR MISSION

Membership in the Fancy Brigade division of the New Year’s Day Parade is open to all members in the community. Members participate in the organization throughout the year in many community-based activities to provide enrichment, perpetuate tradition and education in a variety of venues within the region. The Fancy Brigade Association (or Fancy Brigades) performs at carnivals to benefit multiple charitable interests (i.e. numerous churches, schools, hospitals, etc.). The organization promotes the transmission of cultural folk traditions in the context of social and community activities in which the organization both plans and participates. 

The New Year’s Day Parade is the culmination of a year’s worth of community events, fundraising initiatives, and dedication to perpetuating this unique tradition. Elaborate performances with costumes, music, and dance are the attractions that allow the Fancy Brigade Association to raise funds for charitable organizations in the region.

SPONSOR THE
FANCY BRIGADE ASSOCIATION

As any individual group or company can tell you, the Fancy Brigades are synonymous with Philadelphia. As the New Year Holiday approaches, the media is filled with exploits of the upcoming New Year’s Day activities. The New Year’s Day Parade is the longest continuous parade in the country. Sufficed to say, the fancy brigades are a cultural icon for Philadelphia, South Jersey, and the entire Delaware Valley region. Your company can partner with the fancy brigades and make this association a beacon of pride for your employees or a way to showcase your products and enhance your business and marketing objectives. Since companies differ in the products and services they provide, how they market, and who their customers are, the Fancy Brigade Association has developed a comprehensive sponsorship program utilizing creativity and flexibility to custom-make a vehicle that works for your organization.

Fancy Brigade Association Remembrance Board

The Fancy Brigade Association is starting something new for our annual 2022 Fest and Finale.  Not only that, we felt the need to ensure that we reach out to our Brigade Community but also help raise money for a good cause.

As we embark on Philadelphia’s great tradition year in and year out, we not only  spend time remembering all of those who have left us in past years, but we also remember those who have left us recently.
