 Massie’s May Day Festival is a long-standing Savannah tradition, dating back from the first year that the school opened in 1856. It has evolved into one of the largest multicultural events in our school system. Massie School is the oldest school in continuous operation in the state of Georgia and was founded as a free school for children of the poor in Savannah. Operating as a grammar school until 1974, Massie now operates as a teaching museum for History and Architecture for area students and teachers as well as visitors to Savannah from the US and around the world. 

May Day 2015 was celebrated May 5 in Calhoun Square. Fifteen schools and approximately 1,000 students participated in a festival of dances. Below are pictures of the school groups, teachers, visitors and guests at this year's celebration.  The May Day 2015 Program provides a list of the participating schools, the dances the schools performed, the Kings and Queens from each school, and guest speakers and performers.
