- This event has passed.
This year’s celebration features the yacht races down Jos. Campau (a Hamtramck tradition), and an assortment of crowd-pleasing events for kids and adults of all ages.
Probably the most exciting event at the Labor Day Festival is the annual Hamtramck Yacht Race. A competition involving push-carts that look like canoes on wheels, the race pits patrons of different bars against each other in a race down Joseph Campau.
It wouldn’t be the Labor Day Festival without the Polish Day Parade, and this year is no exception. A variety of Polish groups participate, as well a number of dance troupes, community organizations and, yes, politicians.
