Welcome to the Spokane Great Outdoors & Bike Expo!

The Spokane Great Outdoors & Bike Expo is a two-day celebration of all the awesome outdoor recreation, travel opportunities, and amazing lifestyle we enjoy in the Inland Pacific Northwest.

This third-year event will feature gear giveaways, kid-friendly activities, over 60 biking, outdoor gear, adventure travel, and tourism exhibitors, and up to 6,000 attendees. We’ll have the REI campground in the middle of the Expo, where you can roast s’mores and listen to free educational clinics to help you get outside. The weekend will also include a happy hour benefiting the Dishman Hills Conservancy (i.e. benefiting our local trails), bouldering, bike demos, and a new-this-year event!

Join us at the Spokane Convention Center, Saturday and Sunday, February 23-24, 2019. Purchase tickets below for a discounted price and choose an adventure deal with each ticket while supplies last!

Learn more here.

Outdoor Dog Fashion Show: To celebrate our canine outdoor friends, we’re hosting a dog show! It’s like the Purina TV dog show, northwest-style and less judge-y, and with a focus on outdoor gear and flair. Dogs and owners win points for style and decking your hound out with outdoors-oriented apparel and gear like leashes, packs, collars, etc. Enter your outdoorsy hound or come watch on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 3 p.m. Learn more here.
