Fall is a special season in Spokane, as the heat of summer gives way to crisp, cool air and the explosion of color as leaves change to orange, yellow and red. Fall is never truly complete without finding the perfect pumpkin at one of Spokane’s many pumpkin patches or sipping on freshly pressed cider. Numerous events occur across the region during this time, including family favorites like the Spokane County Interstate Fair and numerous Oktoberfest and Halloween festivities. Experience the colors as you enjoy all the upcoming fall events happening in the Spokane region!
