Be A May Day Builder

Thank you for deciding to become a May Day Builder. Your sponsorship helps us in our continued efforts to preserve and celebrate May Day tradition in New Westminster. It’s time to bring people, traditions, identities and history together again.


Critical funding, such as sponsorship, ensures our effort to preserve and celebrate this 150+ year tradition. Established in 1870, May Day celebrated and pride in our city and its community. New Westminster children in grades 2 through 5 participate in Folk and May Pole dances, the crowning of the May Queen, and public speaking. Additional entertainment is delivered through performances from dance troupes in and around our city – recognizing and celebrating the diversity that surrounds us.

May Day 2022 highlights:

  • a free event for all to attend
  • the crowning of our 151st May Queen
  • honoured guests from municipal and provincial levels attended
  • traditional Folk and May Pole dances performed by New Westminster youth
  • cultural dance performances were a part of our program
