Point of Interest Details

The Gathering at the Falls Pow Wow takes place every year in Riverfront Park with activities centered here in the Lilac Bowl. The history of this event and the significance of gathering at the Spokane River goes back generations. It has been a sacred tradition for many of the tribes around the northwest to gather at the river because it gives life, love, hope, and a sense of revitalization. During past years, Riverfront Park has been home to this event and it has become a tradition for people of all nations to gather and celebrate those gifts the river provides, and create or renew friendships. Dancers and singers, young and old, come from near and far to showcase their songs and dance styles for our community. It is a unique cultural gathering that brings in thousands from the local community to enjoy. Find out more at
