The 38th Annual Wake Up The Earth Festival runs noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 7. Here is a map of the live music, vendors and other events you'll experience.
If you'd like to be in one of the parades leading to the festival, meet at 11 a.m. Saturday at any of the following three step-off points (yes, three this year!):
- The Egleston YMCA, 3134 Washington St.
- Curtis Hall Community Center, 20 South St.
- Dudley Square Plaza, 2400 Washington St. (across from the District B2 Police Station)
Among the attractions at this year's festival is a 3 p.m. performance by Bread & Puppet Theater. Known for their giant paper mache puppets and radical leftist politics, the troupe has been around since the 1960s.
The theme of this year's Wake Up The Earth is "Revolution is Necessary." You can read more about why organizers chose that theme at the website of Spontaneous Celebrations.
The forecast as of late Wednesday night was for Saturday is a high of 59 with a 30 percent chance of rain, mostly before 10 a.m. That's even before the parades begin!
Jamaica Plain News will have a table, as we've done at each of the last two WUTEs. We hope to see you on Saturday!
