May Day 2018

May Day, or International Workers Day, is celebrated every year around the world. In Western Australia, the annual May Day Festival is organised and supported by UnionsWA.


We usually celebrate on the first Sunday in May with a fun, family-oriented day at Fremantle Esplanade. This year we will be celebrating on Sunday 6 May 2018, 10am until 2pm.

ACTU Secretary Sally McManus will be the speaker at May Day 2018

May Day recognises the achievements of working people and acknowledges the significance of the eight-hour working day.

The May Day march will commence at 12 pm, with Unions and community groups walking side by side, celebrating solidarity.
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.
