30 Years of the Mermaid Parade

Dear Friends,

If you’re seeing this post its because I know you are someone who cares about Coney Island! This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Mermaid Parade and right now Coney Island USA needs your help more than ever before. We’ve got great things in the works for 2012, but these are tenuous times. Please buy a ticket to our gala on Saturday, March 24th. If you can’t go, then you can still make a donation or buy a membership! You’ll be supporting some of New York CIty’s most beloved arts programming and will have a great time. Read on for details. I’ll hope to see you on the 24th!


Coney Island USA is invading Manhattan at New York’s oldest nightclub, Webster Hall, as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Mermaid Parade at our annual Spring Gala. All proceeds of the Spring Gala go directly toward funding Coney Island USA’s innovative art programming and of course the Mermaid Parade.
This year’s ticket packages are bigger than ever.

This year’s gala event will feature a dazzling display of daring feats executed by the cast of Sideshows by the Seashore, some of New York’s most talented and titillating burlesque performers, a glorious gamut of go-go gals and guys, as well as special musical guests for your auditory pleasure. And be on the lookout for all kinds of surprises! (including former Kings and Queens)
Please Note: There are no restrooms on the main level and no elevator access to the restrooms, however, venue staff is prepared to carry any wheelchairs or assist in getting patrons into the venue and to the restrooms, if necesssary. You must let us know if you have special needs.
