Help Keep Our 84 Year-Old Tradition Alive!

Of course, we were sad that we weren’t able to celebrate the nations largest torchlight parade in the downtown streets of Spokane last May, but we look forward to later this fall where we hope to team up with the City of Spokane and other organizations for a holiday parade, kicking off the season and celebrating our community. We are also starting to plan the 2022 Spokane Lilac Festival!
In a typical year, we hold many different fundraisers that help us “keep the lights on” and plan our amazing events and Torchlight Parade. One of those fundraisers is our annual telethon which we are unable to do this year. So we are “getting with the times” and trying our hand with a GoFundMe fundraising campaign.
We would love to continue our tradition for years to come and continue to be a part of yours and your family’s lives and traditions…so we need your help. We hope you will consider donating to our Festival so we can strive for our mission statement to “Honor Our Military, Empower Our Youth and Showcase Our Region.”
We can’t wait to see you in the streets of downtown Spokane again soon where we celebrate our beautiful Lilac City and the amazing people in it!  

Proud Signature Sponsor of The 83rd Spokane Lilac Festival

Alan Hart

2021 President

The Spokane Lilac Festival is back for its 84th year!  After a two-year hiatus, we are starting early and opening the holidays with a parade and fireworks downtown to welcome Santa back to Spokane.  The ‘Destination Spokane’ Holiday Parade will be an event to remember and will kick off a great season throughout the region.

Our traditional festival will return the third week in May with a new theme and all the fun events that you know and love.  Community will continue to be an important Lilac theme as we Honor the Military, Empower our Youth and Showcase our Region in festivals both in Spokane and throughout the Pacific and Inland Northwest.

This will be a fun year with many memorable Lilac events.  We look forward to you joining us as we celebrate Spokane and all the great communities of the Inland Northwest!  We invite you to join our Lilac Family either as a Volunteer, Director, Partner or as a Parade Participant!
