Downtown Ellensburg is excited to welcome upward of 300 attendees April 24-26 for the RevitalizeWA conference. RevitalizeWA is an annual statewide conference brought to you by the Washington Main Street Program, the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation.

Individuals from all over the state and the Pacific Northwest will be gathering to learn about historic preservation and Main Street revitalization efforts. Our guests will be shopping, dining and exploring downtown Ellensburg as well as upper Kittitas County. Please expect to see more friendly and excited faces downtown than usual!

In preparation for RevitalizeWA and the upcoming summer months, we are hosting Downtown Clean-Up on Earth Day, April 22. We will be cleaning the sidewalks, trash receptacles, planter nodes and picking up garbage. Please join us at the Wells Fargo drive through at 8 a.m. with any outdoor cleaning equipment you may have including brooms, dust pans, rags, garden shovels and gloves.

Coming up on May 20 is the first ever Like to Bike festival taking place at the Rotary Pavilion from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a bike rodeo for kids, a vintage bike show, a bikes and parts swap meet, a family friendly prize ride to Irene Reinhart park and more. If you are interested in being in the vintage bike show or taking part in the swap meet, please contact the EDA at (509) 962-6246.

We are looking forward to a fun spring and summer here in downtown Ellensburg. We hope you’ll join us!
