MLK Community March and Festival


The Annual Community March celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy, while uplifting diversity and multi-culturalism in Austin. The MLK Community March kicks off on Monday, January 2 at 9 a.m. with a short program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus. There will then be a march to the Capitol for gospel music and then on to historic Huston-Tillotson University, where exciting activities are planned.

In previous years, the march has drawn up to an estimated 15,000 people. All businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals are invited to march with us and celebrate Dr. King’s legacy.

The MLK Community Festival kicks off as soon the march arrives on location and will last until 3 p.m.
