How to Get Your Elkfest On

Elkfest in Spokane

The Deets:

  • The 11th annual Elkfest is a true Spokane indie music fest: outdoors, free to the public and drawing over 10,000 fans every year.
  • The festival has the feel of a neighborhood block party, with the streets blocked to traffic and the stage set up right next to the restaurant.
  • Elkfest happens in the Browne’s Addition neighborhood, where you’ll find renown turn-of-the-century architecture, local restaurants and beautiful Coeur d’Alene Park—all within a few blocks of each other.

The Eats, The Seats:

  • Go hungry – it’s in the heart of Browne’s Addition so you’ve got the key spots like Italia Trattoria, El Que, The Elk, Pacific Avenue Pizza, Cannon Coffee and Cone, Caffe Capri and Browne’s Tavern. Plus there may be a food truck or two.
  • Go thirsty – There’s sure to be taps flowin’ at The Elk’s beer garden. (You’ll find a fresh brew is the perfect companion to their famous Moon Burgers.) Across the way, you’ll find a second beer garden with Pacific Avenue Pizza serving up pints and pizza.
  • Show up early – it’s an outside show, so no seats are guaranteed. Your best bet is to get there early so you can snag a good spot.
