Welcome to the Spokane Great Outdoors & Bike Expo!

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

This fourth-year event will feature gear giveaways, kid-friendly activities, over 70 biking, outdoor gear, adventure travel, and tourism exhibitors, and up to 6,500 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 bouldering, bike demos, and new-this-year events and activities!

Join us at the Spokane Convention Center, Saturday and Sunday, February 22-23, 2020. Check back soon to purchase tickets here for a discounted price and choose an adventure deal with each ticket while supplies last! This show is in partnership with the Spokane Golf Show, so an Expo ticket will allow you to access both shows and move freely between the two.

It’s the most outdoor fun you can have indoors!

Outdoorsy Activities

Don’t let the indoor setting fool you. Check out these fun, entertaining, and engaging activities happening all weekend long.

Kids Adventure Passport: Kids 12 and under can participate in our Adventure Passport all weekend long. The passport will help kids explore games and age-appropriate activities throughout the event. By collecting passport stamps from different activities, kids take home a bag of prizes, swag, and deals for parents. Passport activities include hands-on learning about wildlife, rock climbing, nerf archery, Strider bike demos, arts and crafts, s’more making, disc golf, games, rock splitting to look for real fossils, and more! 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 the show.

Try electric assist bikes: Take the latest e-bikes for an indoor spin or outdoor test ride.

Games: Play cornhole, stone stacking, horseshoes, and other outdoor-themed games for all ages. Sponsored by First Interstate Bank.
