Valleyfest, Spokane Valley’s premier community festival, celebrates over three decades of bringing fun, entertainment, great food and a vibrant community spirit to Spokane Valley. This year’s Valleyfest will be held on Friday, Sept. 23 through Sunday, Sept. 25 at Mirabeau Point Park, Plantes Ferry Sports Complex, and CenterPlace Regional Event Center in the Spokane Valley. The event encompasses entertainment for the entire family, an opportunity to meet and have fun with friends, and recognize area youth for their talents.
Hearts of Gold Parade
On Friday, September 23 at 7:30 p.m. the Hearts of Gold Parade is a staple of Valleyfest that recognizes those in the Spokane Valley who give back to the community with their “hearts of gold.” This year’s parade features over 120 entries, including animals, custom and classic cars, floats, bands, clowns, Miss Spokane Valley Royalty, and more. The parade takes place between North Gillis Road and Perrine Road on E. Sprague in Spokane Valley.

Sunday Valleyfest Activities
Sunday is the grand Multi-Cultural Festival, designed to celebrate and share our various rich cultures and heritages with our neighbors through dance, art, music, fashion, food and business. Also on Sunday is multi sports day, featuring 5k and 10k runs as well as a duathlon and triathlon along the beautiful Centennial Trail.
The Valleyfest mission is to produce community driven, safe, family-oriented, visually-dramatic festivals.
