2022 MLK Celebration Sacramento

The 2022 MLK Celebration live event will be back on Saturday, February 5, 2022 celebrating its 23rd by honoring and remembering the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  In 2021, the MLK Celebration Committee, like everyone else, pivoted to an online event which was a huge success.  However, nothing compares to celebrating when we all can be together. 

Please join us in February 2022 to continue this Sacramento tradition as we continue to build bridges among our community, elected officials, clergy, nonprofits, students of all ages as we continue to create new paths for a better and brighter future for everyone.

We invite you to commemorate, celebrate and be educated at the 23rd anniversary event as we remember the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the tens of thousands of people who have fought and continue to fight for equality across the country.

On behalf of the MLK Celebration Committee, please stay safe and healthy!
