Time Out says

The annual Mayday Festival of Resistance is back on Sunday, May 1, at Maria Hernandez Park, featuring a free outdoor concert, party, and community celebration held in honor of International Workers Day. Show up for Cita Rodriguez (salsa), Milagro Verde (chicha amazónica), DJ Bembona (tropical bass), Junior Mint, RodStarz of Rebel Diaz (emcee) and Combo Chimbita (tropical psychedelic bomba cumbia). This volunteer-led event also features resource tables from an array of community organizations and art-making activities for kids. Cultural workers and grassroots groups will inform residents about their rights as tenants, immigrants, and workers. Speakers will highlight recent wins by workers on the frontlines and other ongoing labor struggles across NYC. It’s a day of music, art, and joyful resistance, where neighbors come together to build solidarity, mutual aid and people power.
