Support MayDay!

Collecting donations for HOBT's MayDayFor 39 years, HOBT has brought people together for the MayDay Festival. Less than one-half of the $260,000 needed to produce this one-of-a-kind event is covered by fees, ad sales and grants.

After the Parade & Ceremony, you’ll see volunteers with Donation Buckets. You can also donate at any HOBT Information or T-shirt booth. If you value and enjoy MayDay, please be as generous as you can. MayDay Depends On You!

Audio/Visual Assistance

At noon, there will be a tactile tour of various floats and puppets.

Preregistration is required for this tour. Please email to register.

The Tree of Life Ceremony is audio described and also presented in American Sign Language (ASL).

If you or someone in your party need these services, please meet by the seating area next to the ceremony ring after the parade.
