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.
