Every Labor Day weekend, residents of Spokane turn out in droves at Riverfront Park to enjoy Pig Out in the Park. The annual event is free to attend and the food and music are fantastic. All types of food vendors – around 50 of them – provide delicious fares of all types. Whether you like food from India or Japan, Mexican food or Greek, there’s something for everyone. You’ll find decadent desserts that have you salivating before you can even place your order. Nothing is over $9.50 and during special hours you can even get $3 Bites.
There are so many delicious food selections you may want to come for all six days of the event. For lunch you can have a bacon wrapped hot dog, deep fried lasagna, Gyros, teriyaki chicken, grilled salmon, fried catfish, stir fry, pizza, or one of the other amazing offerings. The dessert choices are just as varied as the meal choices. Whether you want an ice cream cone, pie a la mode, cotton candy, chocolate dipped cheesecake, elephant ears, or funnel cakes, your only disappointment will be that there is no way you can try everything. This is not an event for anyone on a diet!
There are three adult beverage gardens and music on five different stages. The 2013 lineup includes over 100 concerts. For a schedule of the music, click here. The music is just as varied as the food. Whether you like jazz, country, or rock and roll, there is something for everyone.
With the sights, sounds, and flavors of this event, you will be on sensory overload, and you’ll love every minute of it.
Remember that while dogs on leashes are usually allowed in Spokane’s Riverfront Park, The City of Spokane Event Pet Ordinance SMC 10.03.110 prohibits dogs at many major Riverfront Park events. Pig Out in the Park is one of those events.
