Spring/Summer Horse and Carriage Rides

The Horse and Carriage Rides were instituted in Spokane in 1997 and are an iconic tradition in Downtown. Rides are provided free to the public and are a unique opportunity to experience Spokane from the vantage of a horse-drawn carriage. Riders are picked up on Wall in-between Spokane Falls Blvd and Main and take various routes through Downtown. Horse and Carriage Rides bring the community together for a shared experience and foster an appreciation for a vibrant downtown.


Spring Clean Week

Presented by

Downtown Spokane has served as host to legacy community events since the first Lilac Festival in 1938. Throughout the past 80 years downtown has grown to host Bloomsday, Hoopfest, Pride Festival, and many more small and large activities.

As host to those events, and in celebration of Earth Day. Since 2016, downtown has invited our neighbors to “sweep off the front porch” and prepare a welcome for the thousands who visit downtown.

Spring Clean Week consists of an informational campaign about the services of the Clean Team and BID, as well as opportunities for employees, residents, and volunteers to get involved in taking pride in our community through daily activities and a Friday Block-Party celebration and block emphasis improvement.

Summer Workout Series

In 2016, nearly 350 total participants engaged in an eight-week yoga series held at the newly renovated Tribal Gathering Place located above Huntington Park at Spokane City Hall.
