Pride Parade & Rainbow Festival

When: Sat., June 11, 12-10 p.m. 2016

It’s been a quarter of a century since a few members of the Spokane LGBTQ community made a simple — but brave — march down the sidewalks of Spokane for the city’s first Pride celebration. The years since have meant monumental progress for these folks and their allies, which is why there’s plenty of reason to celebrate the 25th iteration of the Spokane Pride and Rainbow Festival, which features a variety of events throughout the week culminating on Saturday with the parade through downtown, followed by an all-are-welcome festival in Riverfront Park. Oh, and don’t forget about fireworks come nightfall.
