Try Kayaks, Paddleboards, & other Water Craft

Spokatopia is a great event to plash around in the lake-like waters of the Spokane River at Boulder Beach on different types of inflatable paddleboards, inflatable kayaks, sit-on-top kayaks, pedal kayaks, or sail craft. Or join the Spokane Canoe & Kayak Club for a ride in their 8-person Voyageur canoe! Water sports demos run from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and require a $5 Spokatopia adventure pass or gold pass.

Parking & Family/Passenger Drop Off

Parking at Spokatopia can be limited at peak hours but there are plenty of ways to make getting here easier. Carpool and drop off your family/passengers in the main Camp Sekani lot and then go find roadside parking nearby. Ride your bike or walk from a nearby park & bike/walk location. Take an Uber or Lyft with friends. All of our parking and park and bike/walk info can be found right here!

Ride Your Bike to Spokatopia & Win Prizes

The best and most fun way to get to the festival is to ride the Centennial Trail from your neighborhood or from one of the festival parking areas with family or friends. This year just by riding your bike and parking it in our bike corral you’ll also score a free Kate’s Real Food bar  (while they last) and be entered to win dozens of sweet prizes, including an inflatable Dorado iSUP paddleboard from HO Sports!

If you live too far away to bike from home, there are several park and bike locations nearby. Here are all of our parking and park/bike options. We will have a large, secure bike corral at Camp Sekani to keep your bike, kid carts, and bags safe while you’re enjoying the festival at no charge.

Outdoor Recreation & NW Lifestyle Booths

Check out booths from the region’s top outdoor recreation-oriented companies and organizations, from bike shops and outdoor product retailers to outdoor clubs, outfitters, and other small businesses that cater to the lifestyle we enjoy here in the Northwest.


Shuttle up, Ride down. Sekani MTB Shuttles

Spokatopia is the only day of the year when riders can put their bikes on a bike trailer and catch a ride in the Mt. Spokane Ski Race Team van for a shuttle to the top of Sekani for a gravity-fueled ride back down the trail of your choice! Don’t miss your chance to shuttle Sekani! A Spokatopia Gold Pass/wristband and insurance waiver is required to ride the shuttle.

Mountain Bike Jump Show

Watch talented local riders fly through the air on bikes, pulling off tricks and launching off huge gap jumps that few mountain bikers can execute and land. Follow the signs to the Camp Sekani bike park, a short walk through the trees a few hundred yards to the east of the main festival grounds. This free event promises to be an awesome experience for spectators. Show up early to watch riders “practice” starting at 12:45 PM. The main show runs from 1:00-1:45 PM. Want to ride for prizes and glory? Email us at justinmshortba@gmail.com to sign up.

Spokatopia Campground

The Spokatopia campground is the place to relax in a camp chair or hammock, explore different backpacking and car camping tents and gear, and check out Toyota show vehicles. The Campground will also be the place to gather for kids programs and activities and free snacks from Kates Real Food! We will have several large tents, camp chairs and other camping gear set up and on display, including a Zempire EVO VM T2 air tent and Tentsile tree tent. REI will also be there offering games, activities, and information about REI gear and programs.


Kids Bike Demos

Kids of all ages can try bikes in the kids bike demo area at the pump track a few hundred yards east of the main festival grounds, including BMX bikes, kids mountain bikes, and Strider bikes. Free demo pass for kids, liability waiver, and parent monitoring required.


Yard Games

Play Cornhole, Towerball, and other games for adults and kids of ages next to the beer garden or in the Spokatopia Campground area.


Slacklining

Slacklining is a great balance and strength act, and is harder than it looks! A ticket with wristband is required for this activity. Children must be accompanied by an adult. We will have a local slacklining expert on hand to help you learn the ropes of this fun activity. Slacklining happens behind the music stage. Look for the sign.


Kids Activities

Spokatopia has plenty of fun activities for kids and families, including games, arts and crafts, a owl and raptor presentation with live animals at 3:30 PM, tents and hammocks to check out in the Spokatopia “Campground” area, kids’ bike demos, slacklining, a bike jump show at 1 PM, and an Adventure Passport activity where the first 250 kids who complete the passport activities and collect all the stamps in their passport book take home a bag of prizes for the whole family. All of our activities are listed here.


Trail Running

Start the day off right with a 5k trail run on Camp Sekani singletrack. Racers take home a Spokatopia bandana, Kate’s Real Food bar, a beverage ticket to the Spokatopia Bikes & Brews adult beverage garden (21 and older only), and a festival Gold Pass. The run starts at 8 a.m. a few hundred feet east of the Camp Sekani Parking lot at the gate by the start of the Up Chuck Trail. Come early for an optional trail running clinic. Find more info or register here.


Morning Yoga “For Everyone” Class

Join a “yoga for everyone” class led by Harmony Yoga in the Spokatopia festival area at Camp Sekani Park (must have a Spokatopia ticket/wristband). All ability levels welcome. Please bring your own yoga mat if you have one. The class starts at 9 a.m. under the large tent next to the stage (follow the signs up from the Camp Sekani Parking lot).


Bike Skills Clinics & Group Rides

We have several group rides and biking-related clinics happening at Spokatopia this year. Check them all out on our Activities page.


Weather & What to Wear

Since Spokatopia is an outdoor adventure festival in early July, check the forecast and come prepared for all sorts of weather. Don’t forget your bike shorts/helmets for clinics, group rides, and trail riding. Please also bring shoes or boots for bike demos, your own water bottle, a current picture ID and credit card/cash for tickets and purchases. Cash or a card will come in handy for the beer garden, food vendors, and other outdoor recreation items that will be for sale from festival exhibitors too.


Festival Parking & Family/Passenger Drop-off Zone

Spokatopia happens at Camp Sekani Park on E. Upriver Drive along the Spokane River. All of the info on bike and vehicle parking options for 2022 is here. Parking is spread out and limited, so the best Spokatopia transportation option, as always, is to ride your bike! We have a free, secure bike corral where you can park your bike when you’re not riding it. This year we will be giving away a free Kate’s Real Food Bar and random prizes to people who check their bikes in at the bike corral throughout the day.

If you are arriving with kids or someone with limited mobility and can’t find a close parking spot, pull into the main gravel parking lot at Camp Sekani and have the parking attendant direct you to the new Family/Passenger Drop-off Zone where you can drop people/bikes/gear off before exciting the lot to find parking and then walk back to find your people.
