Welcome to the MLK2017 website, the official site for the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebrations in San Francisco. The Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation - NorcalMLK - hosts San Francisco's annual MLK celebrations.
Going forward this site will provide the latest information on the exciting activities and events for MLK2017, along with special notifications, volunteer opportunities, and other chances to participate.
Each January, during the weekend of the federal holiday, we honor Dr. King with programs and activities for all interests. The events culminate on the federal holiday, each third Monday in January, with our commemorative march, celebration and numerous festivals at the famed Yerba Buena Gardens, the crown jewel of San Francisco's arts and culture district and home to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Waterfall, the third largest monument in his honor in the United States.
