Get Ready for a Festive Event!

We're so excited to invite you to this year's (formerly named) Penny Auction. It will be a fun time of social gathering at the Legion Memorial Bldg in Ritzville. We'll be kicking off an hour before noon, with some deliciously warm lunch available to purchase.

While you are eating and socializing, make sure you enter the various fundraisers we will have around the hall. All proceeds help support the Ritzville Festivals Association. Thanks!

Bucket Raffle

$5 for 25 tickets

What is a Bucket Raffle?!

There are many items available to win, and each one is displayed beside a bucket. People buy tickets and place one or more of them in the bucket beside the item they want to take a chance on. At the end, a ticket is pulled from each bucket and a winner is named for that item. (You might also see these called basket raffles, or penny auctions.)

Silent Auction

$5 minimum bid

What is a Silent Auction?

A silent auction is an event at which items for sale are displayed for attendees to assess, place bids on, and purchase. However, unlike most auctions, there is no auctioneer present, and participants write their bids on a bid sheet - hence the name silent auction.

The Ritzville Festivals Association is pleased to announce that Quinterfest is hosting the:
