Event Details


Saturday, November 27


Countdown to Tree Lighting begins at 6PM


North Entrance of Riverfront Park East of Numerica Skate Ribbon


The Numerica Tree Lighting Celebration is a signature Riverfront holiday event and a tradition for many Spokane families. Festivities will kick off at 4pm on Saturday November 27th at the plaza adjacent to the Numerica Skate Ribbon with food trucks and live entertainment. Grab your ice skates, a cup of free hot chocolate provided by Starbucks and join Numerica and Spokane Parks and Recreation as we count down to light our community tree at 6pm.

Numerica and Riverfront are proud to shine light on Spokane’s superstars at this year’s event and invite the community to explore ways to give and serve others. Visit the park from 4-7pm and learn about the incredible work many of our local community-centered organizations are doing to make Spokane a great place to live. Stop by informational booths and participate in activities presented by Joya Child and Family Development, Meals on Wheels, Spokanmial, Alzheimer’s Association, YWCA, Spokane Parks Foundation, Jewels Helping Hands and more!

The evening will also launch Riverfront’s Light up the Night event with the spectacular Trail of Lights and Community Tree Display.
