May Day

Join this Vicfix campaign to celebrate spring in autumn

Vicfix is improving the searchability of digitised newspaper articles and making the hidden details of Victoria's rich history available for everyone.

About May Day

May Day means different things to different people, in different countries – from Druidic spring rites and maypole dancing in the northern hemisphere to parades marking International Workers' Day across the globe.

Newspaper reports note how the worker demonstrations and parades marking 1 May have risen and fallen in popularity over the decades. They also note traditions and events overseas, including during the lead-up to the Russian Revolution and the political upheavals of the 1930s.
