VP Parade

This coming year, 2018, the Spokane Lilac Festival will be celebrating our 80th year of bringing the largest Torchlight Military Parade in the nation to the streets of downtown Spokane. Featuring bands, floats, military and equestrian groups, drill teams and dancers, cars, and more, this event is fun for the entire community; no matter what your age, no matter how long you have lived in Spokane, you will enjoy it!

It takes a year to prepare for our parade, and we have many volunteers who work with us to plan it. If you want to join us, send me an email. As we get closer to the 2018 parade on the third Saturday in May, look for our applications for parade participants on this website.

Our parade is special for Spokane! We hope to see you on the sidelines or in it!
