Nancy Cole

2018 President

On behalf of the Spokane Lilac Festival Association,

It is our honor to welcome you to our website. We hope you will find the information you are seeking that will answer your questions and familiarize you with our 80 year-old community service organization. The 2018 theme is “Swing Into Spokane.”   Our mission statement is “Honoring Our Military, Empowering Our Youth, and Showcasing Our Region.” This year, we will shine a spotlight on all things Spokane that make Spokane the great community it is.

I am honored to be the Lilac President for 2018. Throughout the year, we will take part and host many celebrations, culminating with the largest armed forces torchlight parade in the nation on the third Saturday in May.

Come Swing Into Spokane with us….either as a volunteer, as a parade participant, or a supporter—we welcome you to the Lilac family!!!
