    Festival

The Bread and Roses Heritage Festival is a celebration of the ethnic 
diversity and labor history of Lawrence, Ma. This annual festival is 
celebrated on Labor Day in order to honor the most significant event in 
Lawrence history: the 1912 Bread and Roses Strike. We memorialize the 
event with a variety of music and dance, poetry and drama, ethnic food, 
historical demonstrations, and walking and trolley tours, all on or 
starting from Lawrence's Common. We also host organizations continuing 
the struggle for social justice today.

Bread and Roses is the only broadly multicultural festival in Lawrence, 
the Immigrant City. And it is the only festival in the region, which 
celebrates the true spirit of Labor Day, in the most appropriate 
location, the site of the Bread and Roses Strike. The festival is a 
one-day 'open air' celebration.
