Welcome to the Club

If you own a business or property in the 80 square block region of the downtown Spokane BID, you are a member of an exclusive club actively investing in making downtown Spokane the center for commerce, culture, and living in the Intermountain Northwest. The BID is funded by the City of Spokane and private investment, including Ratepayer assessments (that's you!), contributions to parking validation, event sponsorship, and more. BID programs focus on making downtown a more desirable place for businesses, shoppers, and visitors. Similar to other BIDs across the country, programs focus on clean, safe, marketing, economic development and transportation.

Get ready for Spring

  • Spring Events

    Each Spring downtown hosts a multitude of events and activities celebrating the Lilac City. Not a single weekend goes unscheduled between mid-April and the end of June.

    To help local businesses take full advantage of the influx of visitors to the downtown core, Downtown Spokane staff work closely with event planners and whenever possible will collaborate to create promotions that allow events to directly integrate with downtown retail, dining and nightlife.


  • Spring Clean Week

    Spring has arrived in downtown Spokane, and the community is invited to get outside between April 22 and April 26 to help make our city center shine.

    All it takes is 15 minutes a week to keep your community clean all year long. Pledge to spend 15 minutes by yourself, or with a team, cleaning up problem areas you see. Clean-up spaces around your home or place of business, or contact the Downtown Spokane office to coordinate a team clean-up and receive supplies and assistance.
