The Spokane County Interstate Fair is partnering with Sleep Dentistry of Spokane, The Arc of Spokane and The Isaac Foundation to create the FIRST EVER Sensory Day!
By partnering with local businesses and non-profits, the Spokane County Interstate Fair will be providing tools to assist in managing the overwhelm the Fair may cause for individuals impacted by sensory processing. These tools include a sensory map, quiet areas, Carnival Rides without lights or sound from 3-4pm, and more!
