Riverfront Park is the region's premiere outdoor location to host a broad diversity of events from private family gatherings to massive community events for thousands and everything in-between. We are Spokane's largest centrally located outdoor setting and offer a variety of venue and activity options including convenient parking. Your activity does not have to be a Hoopfest or Pig Out size event for Riverfront Park to be your location of choice for a successful event. Community gatherings, class reunions, weddings, corporate picnics or church activities with discount attraction options, fun-runs, car shows, closed access concerts, facility and attraction rentals are available. Our professional event team will work with you in the successful planning and implementation of your event, rental or activity and as well provide valuable insight with regard to the logistics of events at Riverfront Park.
Private events for convention groups, businesses, organizations, schools and families are coordinated through our Group Sales department. This can include reserving a wedding location; school group reservation; or combine a facility rental with Riverfront Park catering options.
