Unity in the Community: Saturday, 8/20

logo1Unity in the community is a multi-cultural celebration of Spokane’s diversity, bringing the Inland Northwest together based on the shared values of respect, trust, and collaboration. It is about putting into action a “community-building mindset” based on inclusion, equity, and valuing our community asset – human capital. Unity in the Community is in its 21st year of existence. Launched in 1994  It is the biggest multi-cultural event in the Inland Northwest, involving over 30 generous Corporate Sponsors, 100 or so volunteers, over 150 vendors and multi-talented entertainers.

Visit or volunteer with INBA’s booth. INBA needs the support of all of our members, and we invite you to either stop by or help spread our mission by volunteering the INBA booth this Saturday. Two shifts we’re looking to fill are from 10:00 to 1:30 and from 1:30 to 5:00, and anywhere in-between. Contact staff@inbachamber.org for more information.

The 22nd annual Unity in the Community festival begins at 10:00 am at the clocktower at Spokane Riverfront Park and goes until 4:00 pm. Bring a blanket or chairs with you so you can sit on the lawn.  You can watch the performances, wander the different booths (including INBA) and have lunch.  There’s a lot going on, so don’t be surprised if you spend the whole day in the park!

Unity in the Community consists of five key vendor areas: Youth Fair, Career and Education Fair, Health Fair, Early Learning Fair, and General Vendors. Along with vendors there will also be a Cultural Village and a stage consisting of a diverse group of performers and acts to keep you entertained all day. Whatever your age, you will find something to do at Unity.

Unity in the Community relies on volunteers for its success. If you want to get involved, please contact the volunteer page.

Last year, Unity in the Community 2014 drew over 14,000 people to Riverfront Park in Spokane Washington. A major part of last year’s Unity in the Community was the giveaways of over $5,000 worth of school supplies.

Unity is a statement that represents “We are all in this together.” We as a community should never strive to restrict our resources, create boundaries by neighborhoods or engage in actions that do not strengthen partnership or collaboration among diverse communities where possible.
