Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade, 2020

More than 30,000 spectators are expected to attend the 38th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade in downtown Las Vegas.

The parade theme is “Living the Dream — The Time is Right to Do What’s Right.”

Founder's Quotes

“The parade is part of local King Week events, which include the Martin Luther King Jr. Technology Summit, two church services, the Young Dreamers Awards Program and the MLK Scholarship Awards Banquet.”

“The event typically draws 30,000 or more spectators. I think this one [MLK Parade 2020] will be the largest spectator crowd we’ve ever had, based on the phone calls I’m getting.”

“Just 13 entries took part in the first parade in January 1982. The first parade was so pitiful that I had some friends say, ‘We need to help you.’ The parade has come a long way in nearly 40 years.”

– Wendell P. Williams, Founder

Join the parade!

The parade was held in downtown Las Vegas at 10 a.m. Jan. 20 where the community was gathered to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the 38th annual birthday parade.
