Monrovia Days is the city’s annual community birthday party where Monrovians gather to celebrate our talented youth and the Scholars and Champions from Monrovia Unified School District. This year the Monrovia Days celebration will be a two-day event held Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, … the City of Monrovia, the Monrovia Unified School District, and Centre Stage have coordinated to bring back the carnival.

Pancake Breakfast event, a Parade honoring our Scholars and Champions from MUSD, performances by our youth, Carnival food… and of course the famous Pie Eating Contest!
