Welcome to the South Perry Business & Neighborhood Association (SPBNA). We have been serving the South Perry District since 1999. Our organization is dedicated to helping the South Perry District continue to grow and thrive as a vibrant community and business district. SPBNA works with the neighbors and business owners to put on numerous events each year that make our District a wonderful place to live, work, play, and worship.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm. We are currently meeting at Emmaus Church. All are welcome to attend and participate.


The South Perry District is one of oldest neighborhoods in Spokane, and was among the first areas of the city to be developed in the late 1800s. While early residents of the neighborhood were of mostly Scandinavian descent, the South Perry District is currently one of the most diverse areas of Spokane.

The South Perry District is conveniently located near the downtown core, the University and Medical Districts, and I-90. While only minutes away from the center of the city, the South Perry District has a small town, community feel. The District is centered around the pedestrian friendly, historic, Perry Street. Most residents enjoy a short walk from their homes to restaurants, pubs, hair salons, coffeeshops, and more.

With a farmer’s market, churches, a community garden, and a beautiful park, the South Perry District is a great place to live for all types of families and backgrounds.

Street Fair

The South Perry Street Fair

Since 1999, the South Perry District has celebrated each summer with a street fair. Over the years, the street fair has been held in many different capacities. Currently, the fair covers four blocks of Perry Street with arts and crafts, activities, local businesses, and food vendors. There are two stages, a kid’s fair, and about 4,000-7,000 attendees each year.
