Help build the puppets for the MayDay Parade! During the month of April, our building is transformed into a giant studio where staff artists and volunteers create the MayDay Parade.
From Saturday, April 7 - Thursday, May 3, 2018, MayDay Build Workshops are held:
Every Tuesday from 7-9pm*
Every Thursday from 7-9pm
Every Saturday from 9-11am and 1-3pm
On the first Sunday of May, tens of thousands of folks will celebrate a day of community and festivity together. All this takes place because - and only because - hundreds of volunteers pitch in to make it happen.
We offer group volunteer opportunities for individuals, churches, civic organizations, and businesses!
In 1975, HOBT's first MayDay was a gift to the community that was shared by just a few hundred neighbors. Last year, HOBT shared that gift with a record-setting 55,000 people.
The 2018 budget for this exuberant celebration is just over $200,000. We need your help to fill a $38,000 gap to ensure MayDay remains healthy and resilient. Your gift supporting MayDay is a gift to your community.
An evening of new, short, experimental, weird, borderline ‘artistic’ puppet acts from Twin Cities artists with live music and booze. Anything could happen in these late-night, low brow evenings MCd by Akiko Ostlund and Dhann Polnau. As always, when puppets are involved, adult content may arise.
