Held at the beautiful Spokane Community College campus, 1810 N Greene St, Spokane WA, each year the garden show draws in thousands of people.
The Expo offers over 250 booths of fantastic plant and garden-related items. You can explore unique offerings of garden art, wind chimes, planters, garden furniture, iron works, and a wealth of other products.
It's a great opportunity to get something special for someone to pick up something for your own garden.
The Garden Expo is presented by The Inland Empire Gardeners (TIEG). This is our 19th year hosting the Expo. Every year the show provides an opportunity for nurseries and merchants to interact with the community by offering a wealth of goods, services and information. Put the Garden Expo on your calendar and come join us for a day of fun!
Location & Directions
The Garden Expo takes place at the Spokane Community College (SCC), 1810 N Greene St, Spokane, WA. Getting to SCC from I-90 Eastbound: Take the Thor/Freya St exit. Turn left at Freya St. *Continue traveling north on Freya St. Freya will become Greene St at Mission Ave. The SCC campus is located at the intersection of Greene St and Mission Ave. You may enter the campus from Greene St or from Mission Ave.
From I-90 Westbound: Take the Thor/Freya St exit. Turn right at Freya St. (*see above). Campus is located on the corner of Green and Mission. The college is less than 2 miles north of the I-90 and Freya Street interchange.
Parking for the Expo is limited to the surrounding areas of the Spokane Community College campus. There is a large parking lot of the southeast side of the campus and there is an even larger parking lot of the northwest side by the Clock Tower. There is limited designated disabled parking. We highly encourage car-pooling.
The Garden Expo is very popular and will be crowded. If you don't like crowds, may we suggest you attend later in the afternoon when the crowds dies down. There is still plenty to see and shop for. In fact, many of the vendors are wheeling and dealing at that point.
Spokane Community College - Venue
Located at the corner of Mission Ave and Greene St in east Spokane, SCC is highly regarded for its professional-technical programs, including specialties in health sciences; information technology; industrial, manufacturing and automotive technology; hospitality and culinary arts; building trades; and agriculture and natural resource management. The college also has a strong educational tradition in the liberal arts.
Faculty and staff at SCC value and promote the power and growth of learning. The college's four critical learning abilities--responsibility, communication, problem solving and global awareness--are supported and enhanced through curriculum and student services. For more information on their programs go to www.scc.spokane.edu.
There are 3 ATMs located within the center of Lair building by the college bookstore. Two additional portable ATMs are outside. Efforts have been made to also secure an outdoor, special event ATM. Be sure to have cash on hand, not all vendors take credit cards.
Expo visitors can stop by the Expo Information Booth outside in front of the circular driveway on the southeast side of the show if you have any questions. There will be a blown-up map of Expo vendor booth space locations in case you are looking for a specific vendor. Maps are not available for public distribution since it is so large. The Expo is such a big, expansive show it is designed as a go-with-the-flow show, so you should plan to just relax and have fun and take in the vendors and the sights as you come across them.
The main restrooms at the Expo are located down from the southeast entrance to the Lair building on the right hand side of the long hallway. There are smaller restrooms throughout the Lair facility. Porto Potties will be available at a designated outdoor location by the SCC Gym on the northeast side of the campus.
