SPOKANE – Riverfront Park is seeking an exclusive naming rights partner for the iconic Expo '74 U.S. Pavilion. Parks & Recreation re-issued a request for proposals, with submissions due by March 20. UPDATE: Deadline extended to Monday, April 17, 2023. 

This latest request for proposals is a continuation of Riverfront's initiative to partner with community organizations to provide programming and leverage park funds for further sustainability of the community's redevelopment investment. 

“Partnerships like these help us provide free and low-cost programs to the community year-round, and support the vitality of our downtown crown jewel,” said Garrett Jones, director of Parks & Recreation for the City of Spokane. 

The Numerica Skate Ribbon and SkyRide is an example of the community benefits of a naming rights partner, as funds have helped the park provide free activities throughout the year in health, entertainment, family, and signature events.

A contract for exclusive naming rights for the Pavilion will last no more than ten years and would include marketing and advertising benefits including signage, events, hospitality and other promotional benefits.

Parks & Recreation is holding a question-and-answer period for prospective partners through March 10.  A pre-proposal conference will be held on February 16. To view the official request for proposal and associated documents, visit the City of Spokane’s dedicated procurement portal here.
