This May Day, join local artists, groups, and community powered radio station KOWA 106.5 FM in a costumed celebration of past, present and future inter-sectional solidarity and the connecting of Earth Day to international Worker’s Day. Connect visions, liberate space, dress in costume, and dance in raucous radical togetherness! Proceeds will support community radio! Buy tickets in advance, or sliding scale donations at the door.

Radical Political Circus means we’re inviting you all to explore tendencies of the left. Let’s use humor and exaggerated costume to remember breathe life into the history of radical political struggle and imagine our future together. Prizes for best costumes!
Dress up as your hero or your greatest enemy. Make larger than life masks, animistic, human and colorful costumes. Dress up as a Wobblie from 1886 or in Procession of the Species garb…come as cartoonish Anarchists complete with confetti black bombs, Communists outfitted with buttons and red star berets, Women Suffragists, Black Panthers, Brown Berets, the fat cat capitalists with the top hats and monocles, the pigs with bolo hats and clubs, the snitches in stitches, the spy versus spy and the two faced politicians, Students for a Democratic Society, SNCC, ACT UP, Earth First, Progressive Democrats of America, Green Party, Socialist Alternative…it’s up to you!
All local organizations are invited to have a table if they wish and actively engage in passionately pulling people’s support. Organize right then and there! Have a meeting on the side and take an action in the liberated moment of the Ballroom! Show respect for each other and invite other groups and people to help you in taking down the Fat Cat of capitalism! Teach people to know their rights when the pigs come around! Have an act on proper security culture interacting with the Snitches in Stitches! Put together an impromptu song and dance between the blue union and green environmentalists!
We encourage everyone who has time during the day to go to Seattle for any major marches but come home to the Earth Day to May Day celebration!
More than a benefit show, this is also part of the national Mother Earth Day to May Day mobilization which is a call to action to connect the struggles of “People, Planet and Peace over Profit.”
