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.
