The Crescent Windows are presented by Downtown Spokane Partnership and made possible thanks to the Downtown Spokane Business Improvement District.
When Macy’s closed in downtown Spokane in 2016, a journey began for the staff at the Downtown Spokane Partnership. Located in a fifth-floor storage room was a piece of Spokane holiday history, figurines from the windows of the Crescent Department store that graced the block between Main and Riverside Avenues from 1889 to 1988.
From that find, DSP staff began locating storing, grouping and refurbishing pieces of holidays past. In 2018 the DSP partnered with Davenport Hotels to bring a bit of the magic back to Main Ave with The Crescent Windows at The Grand.
This collaborative effort requires investment of time talent, and funding to bring the windows to life each year, and the work has just begun.
Help the DSP establish a fund that can maintain and present these one-of-a-kind displays for years to come. Your contribution not only brings the windows to life, but supports local artisans and businesses. Donate here.
This is a Merry & Magical holiday event. For a complete guide to spending your holidays in Spokane, visit spokaneholidays.com.
