Labor and Agricultural Day

Labor and Agricultural Day 2019 and 2020

Every 1 May is Labour and Agricultural Day in Haiti, while much of the rest of the world celebrates “Labour Day”.  And that makes sense in Haiti, a country with a largely agriculturally based economy and with a large portion of the work force working on small, family owned farms.

The biggest single event for Haitian Labour and Agricultural Day each year is an agricultural-industrial fair held in the capital city of Port-au-Prince. It takes place on public university grounds and gives business owners from numerous industries a chance to showcase their products and services.

There are also colourful street parades, public feasts in all of Haiti’s 10 departments, and a host of other festivals and cultural activities that take place all over Haiti  And, in fact, Haitians living abroad often help put on Carnival-style, events in major US cities and elsewhere in the world.
