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 Roadshow 2021

While usually held as a three day in-person event, the 2021 RevitalizeWA Conference will be held as a hybrid event, with learning opportunities available online and in-person at three sites throughout the state. On Monday, September 27, we’ll be fully virtual with 15+ educational and networking opportunities and the ever-popular Excellence on Main. Then, Tuesday, September 28 through Friday, October 1, we’ll take the show on the road for three locally hosted days of curated in-person learning.

We are thrilled that Gig Harbor, Prosser and Colville will serve as host sites for the in-person days of RevitalizeWA Roadshow 2021! These diverse cities offer attendees a glimpse into the resiliency and ingenuity of small Washington Main Street Communities.

Attendees can register for the virtual learning day alone or sign up for virtual learning plus one of the in-person experiences. Please note that the in-person learning days in Gig Harbor, Prosser and Colville will be capped in attendance due to on-going COVID restrictions.
