The Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation invites you to be a vendor at the City of Tampa’s Martin Luther King Day Parade on Monday, January 15, 2024. The parade is attended by several thousand parade patrons from all over the bay area, as well as hundreds who participate as entries with floats, bands, businesses, and community groups.


Our two-mile route through East Tampa is lined from start to finish with enthusiastic and ethnically diverse crowds, enjoying the entertainment, and sharing the experience while honoring a great American hero. Opportunities abound to sell food, refreshments, souvenirs and other merchandise and the costs to participate are minimal.


Application and fees can be mailed in or submitted online. Your completed application and fee must be received by December 31, 2023. Vendors will be restricted to prescribed locations as specified by Parade officials.
