Mayday Festival of Resistance 2022


The annual May Day Festival of Resistance is back on Sunday, May 1st, 2022 (1-7pm) at 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 our first festival since 2019 and we are ECSTATIC to make this year this biggest one yet!

The festival is FREE and open to all, but we 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

Milagro Verde


RodStarz of Rebel Diaz


Performance by

Junior Mint

Combo Chimbita

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.

If you have any questions or want to volunteer to support this people-powered event, email info@maydayspace.org.
