Alan Hart
2022 Spokane Lilac Festival 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!
