Hoopfest Weekend’s Friday Night Hype

HoopFest Alumni Game Final

Hoopfesters of all ages—near and far—hear what we have in store for you, Friday night of Hoopfest weekend!

Tickets are now available for THE ALUMNI GAME and there are only 1,500 tickets left! New to Spokane Hoopfest this year, The ALUMNI GAME will be taking place on Friday June 24, at the Spokane Convention Center. This inaugural event will be bringing in former Gonzaga University Men’s Basketball players to compete against each other to tip off Hoopfest Weekend. Activities will include a skills challenge, three point contest and slam dunk contest. Those attending the game are welcome to participate in the Washington Trust Bank FanFest, featuring activities and contests that cater to all ages. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the game begins at 7 p.m., with a portion of the proceeds from the event going to the Boys & Girls Club of Spokane and Hoopfest’s own youth outreach program, Ignite  Basketball Association.

HOPFEST at Hoopfest, now in its second year, will be at THE ALUMNI GAME and will feature premier breweries that come out and showcase their fan favorites the night before the big event. No-Li, Bale Breaker, Wallace Brewing, Payette Brewing and MillerCoors will all be serving their latest beers throughout the night. The HOPFEST After Party will begin at 9 p.m., after the conclusion of THE AlUMNI GAME and will be a great chance to enjoy friends and family while getting the opportunity to meet Gonzaga Basketball Alumni. Tickets are on Ticketswest, and for only $15 you can purchase access to both THE ALUMNI GAME and HOPFEST, or you can purchase an individual ticket to either THE AlUMNI GAME or HOPFEST for $10.

The fun and excitement doesn’t stop there. Spokane Hoopfest offers tons of fun activities all day for you to sharpen your basketball skills before you hit the courts. The Friday Practice Round provides the perfect opportunity to build your team chemistry, pick up a ball for the first time since the last Hoopfest or perfect your step back jumper. Opening up 10 courts just north of Spokane Falls Blvd. between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., there will be clinics hosted by former college athletes. Courts will also be open for you if you would like to shoot around with your team. It’s a great chance to hone your basketball skills before the tournament to get even closer to that first place shirt.

Make sure you don’t miss out on all of the fun! Join us for The Friday Practice Round, THE ALUMNI GAME and HOPFEST.
