Lilac Coloring Contest

Color Me Lilac Coloring Contest

Although we were unable to hold the annual Spokane Lilac Festival in the streets of downtown Spokane this year, we still want our Lilac City to celebrate “Destination Spokane,” the 82nd Birthday of the Spokane Lilac Festival, and the “Color Me Lilac” coloring contest.

All ages are invited to participate and entries will be judged by a panel selected by the Spokane Lilac Festival. Entries will be judged on creativity in design and use of medium. Winners will be selected in five divisions: ages 4 and younger, 5-7, 8-12, 13-17, 18 and older.

Winners in each age division will be featured in The Spokesman-Review, the Festival’s print media sponsor, on July 26. One overall Grand Prize winner will ride in a vehicle in the 83rd Annual Lilac Festival Armed Services Torchlight Parade in downtown Spokane the evening of May 15, 2021.

As many entries as possible will be displayed at River Park Square, 808 W. Main Avenue, next spring, starting May 8-16, 2021.

TO ENTER: Mail or deliver your “Color Me Lilac” entry to the Spokane Lilac Festival at 3021 S. Regal, Suite 105, Spokane, WA 99223. The Spokane Lilac Festival office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Entries must be received no later than July 3rd at 2 p.m. and cannot be returned. Be sure to attach a separate piece of paper that includes your address and telephone number so you can be contacted in the event you win. Your personal information will not be published or displayed.
