Martin Luther King Day Parade Black Tie Gala

The Martin Luther King Parade Black Tie Gala kicks off an exciting week of cultural activity. Each year the Parade Foundation honors Dr. King’s legacy of service by honoring several men and women from the Tampa Bay area who devote their time and energy to serving their community. We also award scholarships to promising high school students who have also demonstrated a heart for service as they begin their college careers. Finally we introduce the year’s parade grand marshals who will be leading the parade in a few short days.


The Gala combines music, performances, presentations and great food in an elegant setting. On behalf of the Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation, we look forward to your attendance. For questions concerning the MLK Black Tie Gala or any other parade related information, please use the Contact Us form on our website, or email us at [email protected]
