Mayday Festival of Resistance
Sunday, May 1st, 2022
1:00 – 7:00 pm
Maria Hernandez Park in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn
The Festival is a free outdoor concert, party, and community celebration held in honor of International Workers Day. This is their first festival since 2019 and they are ECSTATIC to make this year the biggest one yet!
The festival is FREE and open to all, but they could use your support to assist paying for performers, equipment, and much more. Think about what you would usually pay for a concert or festival, and contribute what you can.
This festival is bringing some amazing performers to the neighborhood:
- Cita Rodriguez (salsa)
- Milagro Verde (chicha amazónica)
- Bembona (tropical bass) – DJ
- RodStarz of Rebel Diaz as MC
- Performance by Junior Mint
- Combo Chimbita (tropical psychedelic bomba cumbia) headlining!
This volunteer-led event also features resource tables from an array of community organizations, and art-making activities for kids. Cultural workers and grassroots groups will inform residents about their rights as tenants, immigrants, and workers. Speakers will highlight recent wins by workers on the frontlines and other ongoing labor struggles across NYC. It’s a day of music, art, and joyful resistance, where neighbors come together to build solidarity, mutual aid and people power.
