May Day!
Maypole Picnic

Welcome to Spring! Every May 1st we celebrate the traditional pagan rites of fertility and spring with a family picnic, complete with a crowning of a Green Man and May Queen, games for the kids, and a potluck supper. And of course, we will dance and weave around the Maypole!

The Maypole Picnic takes place at Woodland Park beginning at 5 p.m., just off Aurora & 60th near the horseshoe courts. Wear something white and don your flower crowns! Bring your friends and family and spread a picnic blanket among the trees. Bring a dish to share, drinks and good spirits. Pack out everything you bring.

Seasoned May Day organizers from days of yore – please let us know if you’ll be there to help guide the festivities. May Day is new to you want you want to get involved? Everyone is welcome! Contact us at if you’d like to volunteer to make the magic happen.
