What to know about the 2024 MLK March and Celebration in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – On Monday, tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of people will make their way to the 37th Martin Luther King, Jr. March and Celebration on the East Side.

The San Antonio MLK March is considered to be one of the largest — if not the largest — in the nation. It returned to an in-person event in 2023, after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the celebration to go virtual.

The theme for this year is “Yesterday’s Dream, Today’s Vision, Tomorrow’s Reality!”

KSAT will be covering the march on GMSA @ 9 and News at Noon on Monday.

When and where is the MLK March?

The 37th Martin Luther King, Jr. March and Celebration kicks off at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 15.
