MLK Holiday Grand Parade 2023
The 42nd edition of the MLK Holiday Grand Parade will be held on Monday, January 16, 2023, in Downtown Jacksonville. We will, once again, strictly adhere to COVID-19 guidelines in effect at that time. The Foundation will continue to honor the life and enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the ongoing struggle for human rights and dignity for all Americans. Please register for the parade at your earliest convenience to ensure premium placement in the MLK Holiday Parade Lineup.
Join us at the conclusion of the MLK Holiday Parade as we celebrate the 42nd Annual MLK Day Celebration with a variety of activities including Entertainment, Food, Workshops, Books, Poetry, and vendors of all stripes. This exciting one-day event is a celebration of the legacy of Dr. King and the movement for Human Rights and dignity.
