How You Can Help

In the coming months, HOBT will invite conversations with neighbors, artists, partners, and others to imagine how a restructured HOBT might continue to be a relevant and resilient asset to South Minneapolis. Whatever that future of HOBT & MayDay looks like, MayDay 2019 will be a celebration of all that has been and all that is to come.
