Each Memorial Day weekend, the communities around Priest Lake come together to show off the region’s “Crown Jewel” and to fund community projects while the sun shines.
The first Priest Lake Spring Festival was held in 1963 in Coolin. These days, besides the Saturday parade and Sunday fun runs, we have an arts-and-crafts fair with over fifty vendors who bring their handmade wares to sell, pancake breakfasts, “brat” booth, bake sales, quilt display, Lions Club Kids’ Carnival, and more.
On Saturday night the “People Helping People” charity holds its annual wine social, dinner and auctions to raise funds for community projects and needs.
