SUNDAY, APRIL 9 (ONLY)          1:00PM – 6:00PM

2017 Mega March

DOWNTOWN ROAD CLOSURES 1:00pm

 

The 2017 Mega March is a planned, peaceful immigration march through a portion of downtown Dallas ending with motivational speakers at Dallas City Hall.  A diverse coalition of faith leaders, community activists and organizers along with national and local advocates and elected officials are participating in this event.

This event is expected to draw large crowds and will have an impact on Downtown Dallas traffic and parking. Please allow plenty of time for travel as streets near the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (KBHCC) will be affected. Dallas City Hall is located directly next to the KBHCC at Marilla St and Akard St.

If you are leaving the Convention Center after the AM wave on Sunday April 9th, please be aware that you may have both driving and walking delays/detours depending on the time you are leaving the KBHCC. 

If you are attending the PM wave please plan on arriving to the KBHCC no later than 1:00 P.M. as to not be delayed by street closures. You will have no access to the Convention Center from southbound Griffin Street to Young. Griffin Street will be closed. All teams and attendees leaving KBHCC, exit south of the KBHCC. This is both for walking and driving.

Southbound Griffin St. to Young street will be closed for driving beginning at 1 pm. However, you may pass on foot until 2 -3 pm at which time the march will be happening and you will not be able to cross over Griffin/Young/Marilla St.

March Starting Point, Guadalupe Cathedral, 2215 Ross Avenue, Dallas
