Trading Pins

Did You Know? The first trading pin wasn’t actually a pin, it was a plastic “button.” Since 1984 pins have been designed each year by the President to promote the festival theme. The sale of theme pins is the largest annual fundraiser of the SLFA.

2023 Theme Pins for sale at the following retailers

Spokane Rosauers Supermarkets | Spokane Arby’s


Artwork & Stationary

Did You Know? Each year we hold a Jurried Art Show where local artists can submit their best Lilac art. The winning artwork becomes the following year’s official artwork of the Lilac Festival.


Did You Know? Our “Pride, Parades & Princesses” book was created and published for our 75th year in 2013. It was a labor of Lilac love by the members of the Festival and The Spokesman-Review.

More Lilac Fun

Did You Know? Every year The Spokane Lilac Festival Honors Our Military by hosting the annual Armed Forces Appreciation Golf Tournament. Our custom golf tees and ball would look pretty great on the course!

Thank you for supporting Spokane’s longest running legacy event.

The Spokane Lilac Festival provides locals and visitors to our city the opportunity to support the association through our merchandise sales, such as t-shirts, hats and of course the long standing tradition of purchasing our yearly limited edition themed pins.

Money from these sales help the festival financially in providing support for the largest Armed Forces Torchlight Parade in the nation, on the third Saturday in May.

RETAILERS Be a part of the SLFA’s largest annual fundraiser when you sell pins at your place of business. Request a pin board and it will be delivered to your place of business within five business days of receiving your $50 donation.
