Spokane Vintage Swing Festival

When: Sat., April 8, 7:30-11:30 p.m. 2017

The Lilac City is home to a thriving swing dancing community; come see for yourself during the annual Spokane Vintage Swing Dance Festival, featuring live music and dancing, a VIP party, crash-course dance lessons and more. The festival also appropriately highlights April as Jazz Appreciation Month — swing dancing emerged along with early styles of jazz music — and includes live music on Saturday night by local group the Hot Club of Spokane. For the seasoned swing dancers out there, the festival also offers late-night “Lindy Exchange” dance sessions, starting at midnight Friday and Saturday after the evening’s main festivities have concluded.

Fri, April 7-Sun, April 9; times vary • All-ages • $12-$60, free/kids 12 and under • Events at Central Christ Church (19 W. Shannon) and Montvale Event Center (1017 W. First) • vintageswingspokane.com
