May Day Festival and March

Fremantle Esplanade: 10am - 2pm

The annual May Day Festival, held on the Fremantle Esplanade, recognises the achievements of working people while celebrating the significance of the eight hour working day.

Western Australia’s May Day is supported & organised by UnionsWA. The focus for the Festival is to create a free and fun day out on the green and to celebrate all that we enjoy about spending time with friends and families. 
 

MARCH & RALLY

This year, the event will start at 10am with a sausage sizzle breakfast and family entertainment. The march and rally will commence at 12noon through the streets of Fremantle. There are usually about 2000 marchers in total. The March takes about an hour to complete. This route is detailed below in red and includes details of road closures:

Before and after the march, there will be speakers on the main stage to address the crowd and live music.

FESTIVAL

The festival starts at 10:00am, and with most of the day being sponsored, festival goers can expect free family fun to help them get the most out of the day. Free goodies include a sausage sizzle, ice-creams, show rides, coffee, face painting, petting zoo and live local bands.

We're delighted to announce that the keynote speaker is Ged Kearney, President of the ACTU.
