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 2022

Well, they do say third time’s the charm, right? We’re pleased to announce that RevitalizeWA 2022 will be held October 19-21 in Wenatchee. Originally planned for March 2020 and then penciled in to 2021 (and then removed!), we’re crossing all our fingers and toes for an in-person conference this fall. We’re excited to shift RevitalizeWA, previously held in the spring, to an annual fall schedule moving forward.

Session Proposals

We are delighted to announce that we are seeking proposals for sessions from speakers and/or panels wishing to present at this fall’s conference in Wenatchee. RevitalizeWA brings together leading scholars, practitioners, and volunteers dedicated to revitalizing Main Street, preserving historic properties, and protecting cultural resources. As RevitalizeWA continues to draw more interest, there are increasing opportunities to both grow the conference and offer more diverse and engaging experiences for attendees. Our vision for RevitalizeWA includes unique venues, interactive workshops, and many opportunities for attendees to network and engage in the local community. If any of these topics spark your creativity, we certainly encourage you to share your ideas within your session proposal via the link below:
