A detailed history of every year of the Quaker City String Band on its annual appearance in the Philadelphia Mummer’s Parade.

Quaker City is a perennial favorite among thousands of spectators on New Years Day.

Whether fans are braving the frigid temperatures or enjoying our performance from the comfort of their home, the Quaker City String Band has consistently been a “fan favorite.” The members of Quaker City have used their creativity and innovative style to consistently be a top prize winner. The challenge of creating a different theme every year with new music, costumes and choreography is one Quaker City gladly accepts — striving to out-do themselves annually.
