Hoopfest is the largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament in the world and is an essential event for spectators and players alike. Hoopfest has become one of Spokane's biggest and most exciting summer events people look forward to every year.

The Basics

Attracting more than 250,000 basketball players and fans from around the United States and the globe, the Spokane Hoopfest Association puts on its acclaimed 3-on-3 basketball tournament annually.

Approximately 6,200 teams play 14,000 games across 42 blocks in downtown Spokane. Anyone, of any skill level, can play. If you want to play basketball, there’s a place for you in Hoopfest. Teams are made of four players, with three on the court at a time. Each team is guaranteed two games. It’s known as the greatest weekend of basketball on earth for a reason, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of it!

Hoopfest Weekend

Hoopfest is more than basketball -- it’s a weekend full of great games, special events, and competition. Take a look at all the ways to make the most of Hoopfest Weekend.

Nike Store

Nike is the event's official sponsor and a special pop-up Nike Store is also featured downtown. The Hoopfest Nike Store features exclusive gear you won’t get anywhere else and is used to launch great new products. It’s also the only place you’ll be able to purchase the one of a kind Hoopfest basketball.

Toyota Shoot Off

You don’t have to be a great player to try your hand at the Toyota Shoot Off! The most skilled -- or in most cases -- the luckiest contestant to hit a long-range shot in a series of qualifying rounds could win amazing prizes from Toyota! It’s a fun way to participate even if you aren’t an elite player or a player at all. Contestants must be 18 years of age or older to participate. Just $10 for your chance at three shots. Good luck!

Rodda Paint Youth Free Throw Contest

Are you the best baller on the court? Show your skills with the Youth Free Throw Contest! Open to contestants under 17, the contest lets you show off your perfect show, or your granny shot, whichever helps you hit the net. Just $5 for two shots.

Three-Point Contest

Can you sink those threes better than anyone on the court? Prove it at the Three-Point Contest! Show off your long-range skills and win the title of best three-point shooter at the biggest basketball event on the planet. Just $5 to participate.

Slam Dunk Competition

This one is fun for contestants and a show for fans! Watch as some of Hoopfest’s top athletes fly high to sink those exciting slam dunks at Nike Center Court. If you want to participate, just stop by Nike Center Court before the qualifying round begins on Saturday morning. It’s $10 to participate and free to watch.

Hang Out at Hoopfest

An all day, and in many cases, an all weekend affair, you’ll want to find some great hang out spots in downtown Spokane between games. Cool off with a refreshing beer, fuel up with great food or celebrate your win with a scoop of ice cream!

Cochinito Taqueria

Authentic street tacos are the name of game at Cochinito, but even better than the great food are the thoughtfully selected cervezas & spirits. Fuel up with lunch or dinner while you check out the Hoopfest action and have a cold one. We also recommend their famous and unique margaritas!
