The Kootenai Democrats organize events throughout the year to promote Democratic causes and to raise funds to support our organizing efforts in Kootenai County.

democracy Dinner (Spring)

The annual Democracy Dinner is a social event to raise funds for party organizing and campaign support. It typically is a banquet with a speaker at a local event venue and features a silent auction, no-host bar and the presentation of the Art Manley Lifetime Achievement and the Rising Star awards. It is an excellent opportunity to meet and build relationships with fellow Democrats.

Parades (Summer)

The summer parades kick off the political season and are an important opportunity for “TRUE BLUE” Democrats to support the party. Your participation helps us raise visibility for the party and demonstrates local support for our platform and principles. If you like public displays of affection, plan to turn out and support your local party and candidates. If you decide to march, please use our help us contact feature to let us know you will be there.

North Idaho State Fair (Summer)

The North Idaho State Fair is an opportunity for community outreach and (during election years) it serves as the launch pad for the final push of the campaign season. This annual event is an opportunity for people to re-engage in the political process as Summer begins to wane. The Kootenai Democrats fair booth is staffed by volunteers and during election years is frequented by local and statewide candidates. We recruit volunteers to fill 4-hour shifts during the days of the fair starting at 10 am each day. Volunteers who fill one or more shifts receive a FREE PASS to the fair!

Music by the Lake/Theater Night (Fall)

These two events alternate each fall. Music by the Lake takes place on the northwest shore of Coeur d’Alene Lake, while Theater Night is at the iconic Lake City Playhouse. Money raised from these efforts helps to fund the Kootenai Democrats’ local organizing efforts and political campaigns.

Holiday Party (Winter)

The Central Committee Holiday Party is an opportunity for the party faithful to put the politics aside for a moment and gather to celebrate fellowship during the holiday season.
