The 30th Annual Bread and Roses Heritage Festival will be held, as 
always, on Labor Day. This year on Monday, September 1st, 2014!

It is a FREE, open air, labor and social justice event, on the Lawrence 
Common, from noon to 5:00 PM

Enjoy an electric day of musical, dance, and theatrical performances 
from a diverse range of cultures from American Folk, Salsa, Blues, 
Celtic, Hip Hop, and more!

Hungry? Stroll down the walkway of food vendors to choose BBQ, 
Dominican, Turkish, Vietnamese, Mexican, and other international treats!

Have Children? The Kidz Zone will surely put a smile on children young 
and old! With pony rides, face painting, hula hooping, a juggler, and 
even story telling!

Social justice? Our row of information vendors brings together community 
groups and non-profits from around the area to have discussions with 
visitors on the many issues we face, provide resources for those who 
need help, and opportunities for those wanting to get involved further.

Like to learn? Lawrence History Live and the workshop tents are the spot 
for you. Not only will you get historical mentions and reenactments on 
the main stage, but these tents provide a deeper look into past events, 
such as the Bread & Roses Strike of 1912, immigration history of the 
area, present day labor and social efforts, as well as introductory 
classes on traditional and new organizing models.
