The Kootenai Democrats organize events through out the year to promote Democratic causes and to raise funds to support our organizing efforts in Kootenai County.
Opportunities to participate and help organize these events are available to anyone who has an interest to get involved.
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 reengage in the political process as Summer begins to wain. The Kootenai Democrats fair booth is staffed by volunteers and during election years is frequented by local and state wide 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! Use our help us page to let us know you are interested in helping out with this event and someone will get back to you.
Music by the Lake (Fall)
This new Kootenai Democrat event takes place on the northwest shore of Coeur d'Alene Lake. Money raised from this event 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.
North Idaho Democracy Dinner (spring)
Each year the Kootenai Democrats host a regional gathering of Democrats. This annual event is the most formal and widely known event offered by our organization. As part of this event, the Kootenai Democrats nominate members of our community for the Art Manley Lifetime Achievement Award and the Rising Star Award which are presented at the Dinner. The dinner features a key note speaker and is a primary fundraiser for the local party.
