Cobb County Government

Your chance to participate in the MLK celebration


Each year, Cobb County Government and the Cobb County Branch NAACP host our Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration.

WSB-TV Anchor Fred Blankenship will emcee the event. This annual celebration is not a play; entertainment can include dance, spoken word and voice/musical performances. All performances are limited to three minutes and should relate to Dr. King’s message. Auditions will be held at Jennie T. Anderson Theatre, Cobb Civic Center, 548 S. Marietta Parkway, Marietta.
