Preservation & Main Street Conference

RevitalizeWA is Washington’s annual statewide conference focused on historic preservation and economic revitalization, brought to you by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation and the Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation. RevitalizeWA is great way to both dip your toe in the world of Main Street and dive deep into its economic development and preservation principles.

RevitalizeWA Conference 2021

While usually held as a three day in-person event, the 2021 RevitalizeWA Conference will be held as a virtual event, with 25 unique learning opportunities available online throughout the week of September 27-30.

After months of planning for a hybrid conference that would have taken attendees to outstanding Main Street Communities including Gig Harbor, Prosser, and Colville, we have made the difficult decision to transition to a fully virtual event for the sake of keeping our communities healthy amidst the current surge in the pandemic. While nothing can replace the richness of in-person learning, we are still incredibly excited about the incredible presenters, inspiring stories, and challenging conversations that will take place at the conference this year.
