SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR

SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR

Get your kicks, it’s year 66! When the Spokane Interstate Fair comes to town, there are no rules. You show up and you indulge. It’s once a year and my motto is: Go big or go home! My favorite “indulgence” this year is the Cinnamon Roll Funnel Cake complete with cream cheese frosting and piled high with whipped cream. We also liked the ribs from Longhorn Barbecue, Philly Express, Island Noodles, and Mary Lou’s Huckleberry Ice Cream.

We come for the food, but we stay for the entertainment. The fair has exciting entertainment for all ages. They are featuring a special sea lion exhibit where trained marine biologists teach about sea life during a couple scheduled shows per day. These aren’t “circus” sea lions. These sea lions only travel three times a year for educational purposes and they are given plenty of time to rest between shows. They are brought to the fair to educate and not just for entertainment. Our favorite entertainment was the baby pig races! These races happen every couple of hours and you get to see 3-4 races with the final race crowning the winner. These pigs are three months old and they are speedy fast! They shoot right out of the gate, jump over hurdles and race to the finish line. Of course, you can also enjoy your fair favorites such as the amusement park, livestock show, petting zoo and special events happening every night.

Parking is available on our grounds at the Main Gate, South Gate, and Train Gate. Be sure to give yourself ample time for parking each evening as the lots get pretty full. You can pay $5 to park near the front gate or enter to the right side and park for free on the gravel.

“Home to both the Spokane Indians Baseball Team and the Spokane County Interstate Fair, the Fair & Expo Center is centrally located with nearby hotels and restaurants, easy off and on access from Interstate-90, making the Fair and Expo Center very convenient for exhibitors and attendees!”
