Each year the Kootenai Democrats nominate members of our community for the Art Manley Lifetime Achievement Award which is presented at the North Idaho Democracy Dinner. The nominees may not necessarily live lives that have achieved Art Manley's exact accomplishments, but have served this community and the Democratic Party with the spirit, determination and personal ethics that work in concert with the principles of democracy. The dinner features a key note speaker and is a primary fundraiser for the local party.
The Huckleberry Social is an annual fundraising and social event of the Kootenai Democratic Club. It features a soup bar, bread, and various desserts along with a silent auction and live music. During election years, local democratic candidates are invited.
The Kootenai Democrats are now sponsoring an annual Theater Night at the Lake City Playhouse at 1320 East Garden Avenue in Coeur d'Alene. This event takes place each Fall on the opening night of the season opener. Money raised from this event helps to fund the Kootenai Democrats local organizing efforts.
In addition to our featured events, the Kootenai Democrats often participate in annual parades during Post Falls Festival, Hayden Days, and Coeur d'Alene's American Heroes 4th of July Celebration. We are also present each year at the North Idaho Fair.
