Celebrate spring and May Day with Historic St. Mary’s City! Enjoy fun family crafts and activities scattered around our outdoor exhibits.
May Day has historically been a time to mark the start of spring and is still celebrated in much of Europe, particularly in England. May Day traditions often include gathering wildflowers and green branches, weaving floral garlands, enjoying a performance by Morris Dancers, and dancing around a Maypole. Here at Historic St. Mary’s City, May Day is a time to focus on the importance of our natural world. Whether you make a seed “bomb” or help create a bug house, your May Day experience will leave you with “spring” in your step.
All activities are included in general admission. HSMC members are free.
