ARMED FORCES TORCHLIGHT PARADE

Join us on  Saturday, May 20, 2023, 7:45pm in Downtown Spokane for the 84th Annual Armed Forces Torchlight Parade.

Help Keep Our 85 Year-Old Tradition Alive

We can’t wait to see you in the streets of downtown Spokane again where we celebrate our beautiful Lilac City and the amazing people in it. To continue the lilac  tradition for years to come and continue to be a part of yours and your family’s lives and traditions…the Spokane Lilac Festival Association need your help. Following two years without a festival and parade, consider donating to the SLFA so we can strive for our mission statement to “Honor Our Military, Empower Our Youth and Showcase Our Region.”
