Pavilion at Riverfront – NOW OPEN!

The Central Gathering Place for the Spokane Region

Originally built as the U.S. Federal Pavilion for Expo '74, the Pavilion was a gift to Spokane from the United States government. The Master Plan aimed to restore the Pavilion into a flexible use event space able to host everything from the Hoopfest Nike Court game and the Bloomsday Award Ceremony to a summer concert series and an outdoor giant screen film festival. Stay tuned as we prepare to announce our Summer Concert Series in 2020.

Free Light Show Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

AEG Presents

As another step in realizing the 2014 Riverfront Park Master Plan vision of establishing the Pavilion as a premiere gathering place with regional and national recognition, Riverfront Spokane has retained AEG Presents for event booking services.

AEG was selected via an extensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process, standing out among other proposals for their experience in booking national acts, and focus on guest experience and safety. The three year contract with a two year extension option will make AEG the exclusive concert production service provider for national and regional acts. Local musicians and performing artists are exempt, and the agreement establishes priority for long-standing community events such as Pig Out in the Park and Hoopfest to use the Pavilion on first right of refusal basis.

AEG is one of the leading providers of live entertainment in the world, booking thousands of concerts every year, including big names like Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, and Katie Perry, as well as festivals like Bumbershoot and Coachella.

The contract with AEG guarantees Riverfront a minimum of $80,000 per year in rent and a minimum of thirty (30) concerts during the initial three (3) year term.
