Top 5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Week

MLK Festival @ Margaret T. Hance Park Once a year we celebrate the man with the most famous dream in the history of our country. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s work changed the face of the country forever using nonviolent activism and peaceful protests.

Following a march from Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, 1401 East Jefferson Street, thousands will gather at Margaret T. Hance Park on Monday, January 20, for a celebration of the leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. King's life and work will be remembered though performances from local singers, spoken word artists, rappers, dancers, and more. The event will also include vendors, food and a health fair.
