ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Bread and Roses Heritage Festival is a celebration of the labor history and cultural diversity of Lawrence. Every Labor Day, we commemorate the 1912 Strike with arts performances, educational workshops, social justice presentations, local food and crafts vendors, and walking and trolley tours sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Heritage State Park.

LAWRENCE HISTORY LIVE!

Lawrence History Live! is a special place at the festival where you can learn about the history of the strike and the ways it connects to the lives of Lawrencians and workers today. We feature history told “from below” - from the millworker’s perspective and not the mill owner’s; from the renter’s and not the real estate mogul’s; from everyday folks and not the wealthy or the politically connected.

2024 SCHEDULE COMING SOON
