County Celebrations


Contra Costa County annually holds special recognition events sponsored by the Board of Supervisors. 

In January, we begin with the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Commemoration.  On January 19, we paid tribute to to our Humanitarian of the Year, Terri Porter, and Student Humanitarian of the Year, Davis Bullock.  Philip Arnold served as our keynote speaker, and there was entertainment from Faye Carol and Joe Warner.  Find out more on our Dr. King Celebration website.


In March, we recognize the leadership of farm worker and labor leader Cesar Chavez.  In 2016, the tribute will take place on Tuesday, March 29.


In November, we pause to thank our veterans for their service.  The 2016 ceremony will take place on Tuesday, November 8.


Our county celebrations are free and open to the public.  We invite you to join us in person, or watch live online or on CCTV.
