Welcome to our first annual “Lilac City’s got Talent!” event where we will showcase senior talent from any high school in Spokane County. The Spokane Lilac Festival has been working with the Leadership Class at Ferris High School and their amazing teacher Karissa Jacobson to organize and put this event on since December, 2017.  Part of our mission statement reads:  “….empower our youth…” Each year the festival will work with a different area High School leadership class to plan and execute this event.  The students will finish feeling empowered by their new abilities to project plan and the Lilac Festival will donate $500 to their program for their help. Win win!
