LaborFest is an annual labor cultural arts festival in commemoration of the July 1934 San Francisco General Strike.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This year is the 75th anniversary of the San Francisco General Strike. The ‘34 strike was an important point in strengthening organized labor and bringing hundreds of thousands of workers into our unions. In commemoration of this significant historical anniversary for San Francisco and Northern California labor, Laborfest will be having many special events including an art exhibition at the SOMA Gallery, presentations, a labor jeopardy contest as well as a labor film festival that will include videos of the San Francisco general strike. We will be honoring the workers who made the strike, the role of the San Francisco Labor Council and the workers who have build the Bay Area including building the San Francisco Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge and the newly constructed Al Zampa Bridge which is the first major bridge named after an iron worker. Labor faces great challenges today as it did 75 years ago and the need to learn about our history, and how we won victories in the past is vital for today.
