Visiting Spokane

Spokane celebrates the beginning of summer by taking to the skies. Fairchild Air Force Base, 20 minutes west of Spokane past Spokane International Airport, hosts SkyFest 2014 on May 31st and June 1st. The weekend event starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday and features the renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds performing aerial stunts, maneuvers, and formations. Aviation enthusiasts will get a thrill out of close-up looks at aircraft like the C-17 Globemaster III, the C-130 Hercules, and the CV-22 Osprey.

The Spokane area’s beautiful summer weather rarely reaches above the mid-80s, beckoning an invitation to residents and visitors to get outdoors. The 37.5-mile Spokane River Centennial Trail is perfect for cycling, walking, and jogging, and the greens of the Indian Canyon Golf Course become even more inviting this season.

Tipping off on June 28th and 29th, Spokane Hoopfest is the biggest 3-on-3 basketball tournament on Earth, with 7,000 teams, 3,000 volunteers, 225,000 fans and 450 courts across 42 Spokane city blocks. Then, on August 2nd, the whole family can take part in the unique traditions of the Scottish Highland Games, complete with pipe band exhibitions, heavy athletics, highland dancing, and children’s games like Shoot the English Knight.

There’s no shortage of ways to enjoy arts and culture in Spokane this summer. 160 artisans, food booths, live music, and more fill Coeur d'Alene Park in Browne's Addition, just off Interstate 90, for ArtFest 2014 – Spokane’s premier arts festival since 1986. A three-day celebration starting at noon on May 30th, the fun includes a beer and wine garden for adults, while kids let their imaginations run wild in the Make-It-Art Tent.

You can also catch a world-class live performance during your summer visit to Spokane. Legendary comedienne Lily Tomlin splits sides at Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox on June 4th at 7:30 p.m. Then, on June 6th and 7th, the 26th Playwright’s Forum Festival returns to the Spokane Civic Theatre, pitting six Pacific Northwest playwrights and their one-act plays against one another in a competition to find out which one is best.

Visitors and residents of Moses Lake, as well as nearby communities like Ephrata and Othello, gather at McCosh Park from July 31st to August 3rd for the 2014 Five Suns Bluegrass Festival. Della Mae, The Downtown Mountain Boys, and Farm Strong are just a few of the artists taking the stage at the Centennial Amphitheatre and instrument workshops for players of all skill levels take place Saturday morning.
