The Martin Luther King Jr. March and Rally takes place annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in downtown Atlanta. Open to all, the march assembles above the Peachtree Center MARTA Station at Peachtree and Baker Streets at 1:15 p.m. and travels down Auburn Avenue to the King Center around 1:45 p.m.

Note that MARTA will operate on Saturday schedule on MLK Day with rail service starting at 4:45 a.m.

MARTA Directions

  1. Take a red or gold line train to the Peachtree Center MARTA Station
