Come celebrate May Day, International Worker's Day, Saturday May Fourth from noon until 4:30 PM on the New Haven Green. This is the 27th 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.
Our performers on the Green include hip-hop music by the Coalition, Latin sounds by Rick Reyes of Cosmic Jibaros, and the incredible I Anbassa, a reggae band with a powerful and meaningful message, our headline band at 3:00 PM. Bill Fisher and Out On a Whim will lead our May Pole Dance at 4:00 PM. Always the highlight of our day. Imagine a May Pole 20 feet tall with enough streamers for 30 dancers, who weave an intricate pattern around the maypole.
In case of rain, the May Day event will take place on Sunday, May 5th, at the same time and place.
