The Capitol March

The CAPITOL MARCH is about bringing people together to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and dramatizing those important issues that impact our future.

The six mile "Marade" (March and parade) as it's affectionately called goes through some of Sacramento's most historic neighborhoods. It begins on Martin Luther King Jr. BLVD, to Sacramento City College, past the west steps of the State Capitol and finally to the Sacramento Convention Center.

Where would you like to begin your march?

  • Martin Luther King Jr. BLVD

    The first stage begins on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between the Oak Park Community and Father Keith B. Kenny Elementary School. If you're an early riser and want to walk the full six miles, then you will definitely want to start at Oak Park. The themes for stage are "Community, Faith and Family." This stage honors the past, and marchers are encouraged to walk reflectively with friends and family, remembering our recent passed and those who gave their lives for social justices. You can expect stage one to be packed with motorcycles, Corvettes, news satellite vans and did I say lots of people. RAIN OR SHINE, the true believers and the March faithful will start at the Oak Park jump-off.

    3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Sacramento 95817 (8th Ave and MLK, Jr Blvd.)

  • Sacramento City College

    The second stage of our journey begins at Sacramento City College. If you're committed to the cause, but need that extra hour of sleep, then you want to begin at Sacramento City College. The City College jump-off has the best available parking, and you can even take the light rail to the City College march. The themes for stage two is "education and individual achievement." With an eye on the future, marchers should consider their own personal goals and encourage others around them. Marching bands, politicians, schools, civic and social groups traditionally begin at City College stage. We're encouraging all banner organizations (groups who register to march) to go out and buy a banner to identify their groups.

    The third stage of our journey begins as the marchers pass the west steps of the State Capitol building. The theme for stage three is “civic engagement, social justice or politics. Stage three challenges marchers to get involved—to Stand-up, Speak-out and make a difference.
