WestCoast Entertainment’s (WCE) Best of Broadway 

The curtain goes up at the WCE Best of Broadway at the end of the year and runs through the spring. Feed your need for the magic of Broadway musicals and staged productions of movie musical classics with a night or matinee at the theater! The First Interstate Center for the Arts is where it all happens, so be sure to get your tickets in advance to share in the lights, sounds, and artistic energy that can only come from seeing a show live. 

Spokane Symphony 

For those with an ear (or two) for music, the Spokane Symphony concert season continues each winter at The Martin Woldson Theater at the Historic Fox Theater. Take a look at this season’s schedule of classical, pops, holiday music, and more.  Don’t miss out on special performances of classical ballet including The Nutcracker, the Tchaikovsky holiday standard that transports the audience into the dream of young Clara as she explores the magical Land of Sweets.

Ice Skating on the Ice Ribbon

As part of Riverfront Park’s massive revitalization, the new Ice Ribbon is now an excellent way to enjoy colder weather. Experience the first and currently only ice ribbon on the west coast here in Spokane! Bring your crew and speed around the 650 feet of ice skating pathway and take breaks to warm up near the cozy fire pits with piping hot cocoa from the SkyRink Cafe.
