3rd Annual Hip Hop meets the Labor Movement Fest

Hip Hop for Labor Festival

Albany – On Labor Day, Sept. 4th, 2006 the Capital District
Area Labor Federation (CDALF) will host the third annual
“Hip-Hop Movement Meets Labor Movement” Cultural
Festival. This event is co-sponsored by Schenectady Mayor
Brian U. Stratton.

The festival will showcase local artists exclusively: dance
troupes, poets and local emcees will share the stage with
local labor leaders. Performers include Albany’s own
Broadcast Live, Origin, JB!!, and many more.

Live painting by Chris Stain and Josh MacPhee have been
added to the program thanks to the Carpenter’s Union, who
has constructed walls for murals.

Though this year’s festival has moved to Schenectady, it will
continue to be open to the public free of charge, with family
oriented activities and performances. The Central Park Pool
is open from noon till seven pm, and is also free. Grills and
picnic tables are available, event participants are also
welcome to bring their own grills and food.
