by May Day Celebration Committee
Come celebrate May Day, International Workers’ Day, Saturday, May 2 from noon to 5 p.m. on the New Haven Green. Raindate: Sunday May 3.
This is the 29th 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 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 worker’s best hope. At a time when immigrants are still struggling for their rights, we celebrate our immigrant heritage and culture.
Our featured performers on the New Haven Green include “Coalition Hip Hop,” “N-Finity Muzik” and “The Foresters.”

May Day mission statement: to organize a multi-cultural festival that honors and celebrates our labor history and the labor, peace, social service and social justice groups that today continue the struggle for peace and human rights.
