Labor Day Picnic at Oak Park

A Celebration of Labor
There has not been a more important time to stand with labor in recent memory. And
there’s lots of work to do. Begin by celebrating Labor Day with your fellow Santa Barbara County Democratic Party! Enjoy tasty BBQ, great camaraderie and the beautiful scenery of Oak Park. Help support your local Democratic Party’s fight to support the rights of working people to unite, to protest, to withhold their labor, to boycott unfair businesses, and to demand change in all areas of business and society. These rights transcend individual labor statutes.
Monday, September 3,
2 – 5 p.m.
Oak Park (300 W. Alamar)
$25 at the door (children 8 and under are free!)
Save time and purchase your meal and drink tickets in advance.
