Honoring Our Military, Empowering Our Youth, Showcasing Our Region

Sam Snow | 2023 “Onward” Festival President

The Spokane Lilac Festival is in its 85th year! With the re-opening of our community this past year, the Lilac Festival hosted our usual great events and implemented exciting new ones as well. We look forward to carrying this energy into next year with our volunteers and partners.

Our traditional festival will return the third week in May with a new theme and all the fun events that you know and love. The community will continue to be an important part of the Lilac Festival as we continue working towards our mission to honor our military, empower our youth, and showcase our region in Spokane and throughout the Pacific Northwest. This will be a fun year with many memorable Lilac events.

Thank you for your generosity and support! We look forward to you joining us as we celebrate Spokane and all the great communities around the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
