Celebrated as International Workers’ Day, May Day is Monday, May 1. As in past years, we expect and encourage peaceful expressions of free speech.

If you live or work downtown or in nearby neighborhoods, plan for potential traffic disruptions and for larger than normal crowds along march routes.

Travelers can expect at least the following permitted marches:
  • Veteran Anti-War Formation: March at 8:45 a.m. from the Garden of Remembrance at 2nd Ave and University. The march route is south on 2nd Ave, east on James St, east on E Cherry St, south on 23rd Avenue to Judkins Park. About 200 people are expected to attend.
  • Annual May Day March for Workers and Immigrant Rights: Rally at Judkins Park at 11 a.m. followed by a march from Judkins Park to Seattle Center at 1 p.m. The march route is via S Jackson St, 12th Ave, Madison St, 6th Ave, Denny Way, 5th Ave N and will end at Seattle Center. About 8,000 people are expected to participate.

As always, stay alert and be aware of your surroundings. Call 911 if you see criminal activity.
