The statewide annual conference, RevitalizeWA, will take place in Wenatchee April 6-8, but registration is open now. The Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation, the Washington State Main Street Program and the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation host the three day event that focuses on historic preservation and economic revitalization.

"Locally, the program that's using the Main Street approach is the Wenatchee Downtown Association and they're our partner in hosting Revitalize WA," said Breanne Durham, Washington Main Street director. "The conference is really an opportunity to bring practitioners together and people who want to learn more about the wide variety of subjects related to economic development and historical preservation."

At the conference, skill building trainings will be offered, networking can unfold and tours will provide hands on insight to preservation projects locally.

"We'll certainly be looking at great Wenatchee examples like Pybus Market," said Durham. "There will be a plethora of classroom sessions, bringing speakers from all over the state and the Northwest."

Space is limited, so it's advised to register sooner than later.
