This is the Revels’ annual celebration of Mayday with the crowning of the May Queen, Morris dancing, Maypoles, and lots of great singing from our Solstice Ensemble Chorus members - plus a procession that stars our guest of honor from the petting zoo!
Join us at the Oakland Zoo for a traditional celebration the whole family will enjoy.
Free with Zoo admission.
When you volunteer on May Day, you will become a cherished ambassador who will be trained on the upcoming events the California Revels will be hosting and what the Revels offers and brings to the Bay Area communities through theatrical and musical joy. Of course, you’ll also have the thrilling opportunity to work side by side with Board Members, performers, singers, and dancers.
Our May Day event begins at 12 noon and ends at 1:30 - and your training will begin approximately an hour prior to the event start time.
If being part of a creative and fun-inspiring group of people sounds appealing, then volunteering at
May Day at the Zoo with California Revels will be a grand and perfect match for all!
Who are Revels? Revels is about people coming together to celebrate the season. It’s musical theater that holds something special for the whole family. You don’t just "go to" Revels; you are Revels. You will hear music and make music, see dancing and have the chance to dance yourself, plus be part of ceremonies and traditions that people have used to celebrate the seasons for hundreds, or even thousands of years.
We look forward to meeting you!!!
