San Diego’s Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Parade Returns for its 42nd Year

Join us on Harbor Drive for the 42nd Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Parade! This is one of the largest celebrations of its kind in the United States in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The parade is filled with dazzling floats, phenomenal high school bands, drill teams, colleges, fraternities, sororities, churches, and youth organizations.

There is also a community 5K walk/fun run and festival planned on the same day—details can be found here.

Honoring Dr. King

The Martin Luther King Jr. Parade is coordinated by the Zeta Sigma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., the oldest African American fraternity in America, founded in 1906. The seven men who founded this organization at Cornell University in Ithaca New York recognized the need for a strong bond of brotherhood among African descendants in this country. Dr. King was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha.

See you there!

Come and join your community and help continue the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This event supports scholarship opportunities for the youth of San Diego.

See you there, San Diego!
