DACNW Website 2nd Annual Disability Pride Celebration

Join us as we are Building Bridges during our family friendly, FREE event to celebrate Disability Pride month in Riverfront Park in Spokane. This Multi-Cultural event will start on July 27th at 11am and run through 3pm. It will be located around the fountain entrance, near the carousel.

“Disability is present in every culture, that’s why we are celebrating all the cultures in our area and how they intersect with disability,” said Mark Leeper, Executive Director of Disability Action Center, NW.

The event will kick off at eleven with a proclamation from the Spokane Mayor about the passage of the American’s with Disabilities Act 24 years ago. Multi-cultural dance presentations, folk music by Dan Maher, and a presentation of the Tom McTevia Memorial Accessible Recreation Award to ParaSport Spokane will round out the entertainment. The Memorial Award was first given in 2016, in memory of community activist Tom McTevia. This former cop and Navy veteran was a chair user who advocated for accessibility in Coeur d’Alene before his death in 2015. Despite his physical challenges, he was active in kayaking, hunting, bicycling, and skydiving, and wanted everyone to have the same opportunities to live an active lifestyle.

Arrive early for FREE tickets for food including cuban and mexican food, kettle corn, shaved ice and smores. And FREE t-shirts will be given away while supplies last.

A World Market and a Resource Fair will feature over 35 vendors. And there will be a kids area with games, crafts, face painting and sidewalk chalk art.

And be sure to take part in the ADA trivia contest (the answers will be provided throughout the venue!). You can learn something AND you might win some raffle prizes!

If you or someone you know has a disability, you need to come and enjoy an event just for you. This event is fully accessible, including ASL interpreters.
