You are invited to join us and The City of Mesa along with the Mesa-East Valley MLK Committee as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, Jan. 16. This year’s celebration theme is “Tomorrow Is Today.” The festivities will begin in downtown Mesa with a parade of community groups and organizations, businesses, churches, and east valley cities. The celebration will continue with a festival featuring food, vendors, and fun.
The Mesa-East Valley Dr.; Martin Luther King Jr. parade begins at 11 a.m. on Center Street at Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The festival will take place on Macdonald just north of Main Street from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. following the parade.
Mesa’s annual MLK celebrations were created after residents, in 1996, voted to establish a citywide holiday recognizing the leadership of Dr. King. More information can be found at https://mesaevmlk.org/
