MLK Day Events


Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, along with the New Orleans Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Planning Commission announced the schedule of events for the City’s 26th annual MLK holiday celebration.

This year’s theme is “United in times of Challenge.” Mayor Landrieu said he’s hopeful that in remembering Dr. King’s legacy, the City can overcome its current challenges together as one. “We face many challenges today—violence, fear, division, but I know, together, we as citizens can overcome these challenges and act to improve the lives of our people.”

All citizens are welcome and encouraged to attend the opening program on Martin Luther King Jr., Day events. The opening program will begin at Congo Square at Armstrong Park on Monday, January 16, 2012 at 9:30am, followed by the 26th annual MLK Memorial March at 10:00am.

The march starts at the entrance of Armstrong Park at N. Rampart and St. Anne. It goes down N. Rampart towards downtown. N Rampart turns into Oretha Castle Haley at Calliope. The parade continues down OC Haley and makes a right turn on MLK Blvd. It goes up MLK to S. Claiborne ends at MLK Monument on S. Claiborne and Felicity.
