Event Date: January 20, 2020

DPS at the Marade
Superintendent Susana Cordova marches with DPS team members and families in the 2019 Marade.

Join DPS educators, students, team members, Board of Education members and district leadership as we come together on Monday, Jan. 20 to commemorate the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the 35th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Marade (march and parade).

Meeting Up:

Team DPS will be meeting between 9–9:30 a.m. with coffee at the East High School main entrance steps (facing City Park Esplanade) and then will head over together to the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial. You are also welcome to join us directly at the memorial at 10 a.m., just look for the DPS banner! Please RSVP to get last-minute details and changes!

What to Bring:

As we know, Colorado weather is finicky! Here’s how to be the most comfortable:

  • Dress in layers. Although the weather in the morning may be cold, it may warm up during the Marade.
  • Consider bringing hand warmers
  • Bring a water bottle!
  • Wear comfy shoes- we will be walking roughly the length of a 5K

Live the Shared Core Value of FUN by sharing your pics with Team DPS!

At the event, feel free to post Marade photos on social media using #TeamDPS and tagging @DPSNewsNow and we’ll share them on our main DPS channels.


Starting at City Park and ending at Civic Center Park. Here is a link to the route map, which is roughly the length of a 5K. The speakers will be at the Martin Luther King Memorial, and the audience will be south  of this (towards East High School)

Parking and Travel: 

Parking and travel can be a challenge, so we suggest that you consider carpooling or take public transit (however- the routes will be detoured beginning at 9:30 a.m.). If you wish to park, we suggest parking at East High School (we’ve been told that the lot fills up rapidly and street parking becomes scarce by 9:30).
