VOLUNTEER FOR MAYDAY!
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.
Sign up by the end of the day TODAY (4/12) for a chance to win 2 FREE tickets to next year’s season!
Donate to support MayDay!
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.
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*
* American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation is available at every Tuesday night workshop.
Workshops are free, although donations are graciously accepted, always welcome, and much needed.
Learn more about the workshops on our website!

Below is a list of materials needed for MayDay. You can bring donations to the Avalon Theatre during any workshop time starting April 7, 2018 – Saturdays 9-11am and 1-3pm; Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm.
