CANCELLED Labor Fest 2021 - Madison Sept 6

Event Dates: 

Due to worker safety and public health considerations, the Unions of the South Central Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO (SCFL) voted to unanimously cancel LaborFest, which was to be held on September 6th at the Madison Labor Temple.

Each year, SCFL’s Community Services Committee collects items for our students who are homeless within the Madison school district.  This year, gift cards of all types are most appreciated, and can be dropped off or sent to the United Way of Dane County, 2059 Atwood Ave., Madison, WI 53704.  To make arrangements and for further details, please click here.
