MLK Day Parade and Music Festival

United Group of Artists presents the fourth annual parade and festival continuing MLK’s legacy of advocating for social and racial justice. This year’s theme is “Stand With Love, Not Hate” and will feature a variety of dance teams, schools, nonprofits, churches, decorated vehicles and other local organizations. The parade will begin on the corner of Hull and Washington Streets and will be followed by a block party with food, vendors and live entertainment. A concurrent club crawl with family-friendly activities will donate a portion of proceeds to the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement’s “End School to Prison Pipeline” program.
