The City of Inglewood will host its annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration on Saturday, Feb. 18. This event, which was rescheduled due to rain and now coincides with Black History Month, will get underway at 11:00 a.m. along downtown Market Street (Market Street from Florence Ave. to Hillcrest Blvd.). King Fest is a fun-filled family event that will celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. King along with other Black historical figures that changed the world. King Fest will include commercial vendors, interactive games, food trucks, and live entertainment, including Noel Gourdin, Andrew Gouche, The Reel Band, Tiffany Gouche, Kenyon Dixon, and more. The event will also include special guests and some of Inglewood’s and L.A.’s hottest DJs – DJ Battlecat, DJ Malski, and DJ Rtistic, to name a few.
A highlight of the event will be the presentation of the winners of the City of Inglewood’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Speech Contest. Be sure to come out and support our winning students!
