6th Annual Cheney MayFest!    Friday, May 11th and Saturday, May 12th mark the 6th Annual Cheney MayFest, a grand celebration of Springtime in historic downtown Cheney, WA!  MayFest is a community affair with street vendors, live entertainment, art in the alley, loads of free family activities, a classic car show, a cornhole tournament, a retro camper photo booth, and as they say… so much more!

FOOD, DRINK, & SHOP!    MayFest proudly features an amazing array of local restaurants, bars, and new this year some food trucks for your dining and drinking delight, all in the heart of downtown Cheney!  There are also plenty of local stores and boutiques for your shopping pleasure.  With such a variety of stellar eateries and retail therapy, you will certainly need to return soon after MayFest to finish your culinary and commerce quest of the 99004!

MOTHER’S DAY!   MayFest just happens to fall on Mother’s Day weekend this year!  So Cheney MayFest will be offering Mother’s Day Flowers by the bundle at a price to fit any kids’ budget.  Angela of Pistol Packin’ Posies in the old restored pickup and pick up a bouquet for Mom!

TURNBULL WILDLIFE REFUGE!   Again this year MayFest is partnering with Turnbull Wildlife Refuge’s Annual Floods, Flowers, and Feathers Festival by featuring many of their vendors in one centralized location in downtown Cheney on Saturday of MayFest!  Yay!

WHAT’S HAPPENING!   Cheney MayFest kicks off Friday, May 11th at 7 pm until about 10:30 pm with a good old fashioned street dance featuring Kelly Hughes Band and then a delightful Hula performance by Eastern Washington University’s Hawai’i Club around 8:30 pm.

Saturday, May 12th, things get serious… seriously awesome!  With street vendors, the Game Truck, live music and dance performances, 2nd Chance Ranch Petting Zoo, bouncy slides and games, Happy Camper Photo Booth, artists, and way too much to list here!  Check out our Event Schedule for a complete list of who, what, where, and when at Cheney MayFest 2018!
