Join the Washington Trust and friends on Saturday, May 18, for our annual Vintage Washington fundraising event!

We’re thrilled to be in the Japantown section of Seattle’s Chinatown-International District for this year’s event, to bring the local preservation community together in person to celebrate places saved, highlight ongoing campaigns from our Most Endangered Places program, and rally behind sites that are newly in danger.

This year’s event will take place at the historic Nippon Kan Theatre, a former Japanese theater built in 1909 at 628 S. Washington Street (closed for decades and now reopening to the public!). Guests will hear from Washington Trust staff, board members, and community advocates about the places we’re fighting to save around the state and how you can help.
