The Festival is a free outdoor concert, party, and community celebration held in honor of International Workers Day. This is our first festival since 2019 and we are ECSTATIC to make this year the biggest one yet!

The festival is FREE, open to all, and brings some amazing performers to the neighborhood!

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.
