Unity in the Community is the largest multicultural celebration in the region and has been going strong for over 20+ years. It takes place the 3rd Saturday in August right in the heart of Downtown Spokane in Riverfront Park.
Thru its history several different organization have helped in facilitating this amazing celebration and CME is proud to say we hosted the coordination of the planning from 2008 – 2014. In 2015 Unity became its own non-profit organization and is organized by a 100% volunteer based planning committee. Planning is a year round endeavor and they are always looking for more people to join the committee. Contact them for more information on how you can get involved and be sure to follow the event on Facebook to stay up to date on all the announcements.
What is Unity in the Community?
Unity in the Community is the largest multicultural celebration in the Inland Northwest.

Unity in the Community was created to celebrate the strength of diversity and create an understanding between all races and cultures.
