Spring in Walla Walla!

experience all the colors of the valley

March to May

the valley bursts into color

Along with bud break in area vineyards, the valley bursts into shades of green in the spring with winter wheat framing the hills along the base of the Blue Mountains, and vineyards and orchards come alive after the winter months. Walla Walla gets a little more “pep in its step” in March with the annual Walla Walla Guitar Festival (March 10-12) bringing in noteworthy blues musicians performing at a variety of venues in downtown all weekend long.

With longer and warmer days in April and May attention turns to more outdoor activities! Bennington Lake holds two noteworthy events – the Walla Walla Women’s 6-Hour Race (April 15) and the Onion Man Triathlon (May 20), one of the first triathlons of the season! And wine is never far from the scene with Spring Kick-off Weekend (April 4-7) and Spring Release Weekend (May 5-7), offering wine lovers opportunities to pick-up and sample the newest releases from Valley wineries.

And in 2023 the Walla Walla Balloon Stampede returns to Mother’s Day weekend (May 11-14), offering shutterbugs noteworthy photos of bright colored balloons dotting the sky.

March is for jamming in Walla Walla

March 10-12, 2023

There’s nothing that can replicate the feeling of a live performance; the energy of the performers and the crowd, the details of the venue, the light, the sound, and of course… the music! 

And every March the Walla Walla Guitar Festival offers no better way to get out and experience it for yourself in multiple venues, featuring not just local but regional and national acts, all happening in the heart of Walla Walla!
