Event Details

Join us on Monday January 15, 2024, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm, as the Town of Ridgefield presents the 28th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration, honoring the legacy of the great civil rights leader. Along with entertainment by local performers and organizations such as SPHERE, The Ridgefield Chorale, actress Kimberly Wilson and more, The Spirit of Dr. King Community Service Award is presented each year to a member of our town who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community service and selflessness in the finest traditions of Dr. Martin Luther King.

This year’s ceremony honors Denise Qualey, who has served the youth of Ridgefield – both officially and unofficially – for decades as chair of the Ridgefield Youth Commission and managing director of Kids In Crisis.

This annual tradition honors the memory of Dr. King and celebrates how that memory lives on in the good works of Ridgefielders today and is FREE for the community.
