Jump up the Sun!

Come celebrate May Day, 2017 with the Bay Area Morris community

Morris dancers throughout the Bay Area gather together with their sticks, ribbons, bells, hankies, and baldrics, for music and dance in our annual May 1st celebrations on Monday. We wake the Sun and bring it back for a whole year! (Besides being a great deal of fun, you'll notice it works, too!)   Be part of it. Show up while it's dark and watch the Sun make its grand entrance. See the spectacle! Watch the magic! Cheer the dancers! Join in the celebration!  There are 5 locations in the Bay Area, so come to one near you!
