May Day New Haven celebrates its 30th year, from noon-5 p.m., Sunday May 1, New Haven Green

Come celebrate May Day, International Workers’ Day, Sunday May 1 from noon until 5 p.m. on the New Haven Green. Raindate: Sunday May 8.

This is the 30th consecutive year of May Day on the Green. May Day is a multi-cultural festival featuring live music, poetry, dance, children’s activities, speak-out time, a May Pole Dance, free vegetarian food and displays and information tables from local labor, peace, social service and social justice groups. May Day is a participatory event that is free and everyone is invited.

At a time when labor unions are being harassed around the country we celebrate labor unions as being a workers best hope. At a time when immigrants are still struggling for their rights, we celebrate our immigrant heritage and culture. At a time when violence threatens our communities we say tax the rich and give us jobs. At a time when US forces and drones are still deployed around the world we say no more war.

Our featured performers on the Green include Coalition Hip Hop, N-Finity Muzik and Not Here.
