Summer in Walla Walla!

savor summer in southeastern washington

June to August

Music, MOvies & wine

Magnificent sunsets grace the skies throughout the summer, providing a colorful backdrop to the many musical experiences in the Valley. From the nearly month-long Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival (June 6-29, 2024) to the weekly performances in wineries, tasting rooms and new Walawàla Plaza off Main Street, the hills (and streets and barrel rooms) come alive with music.

For those who may rather have a seat in an air-conditioned theater, they may experience an “intoxicating” blend of short films at Walla Walla Movie Crush (July 5-7, 2024). And for those seeking the sound of wine bottles opening, they can immerse themselves in social and educational wine festivities at Celebrate Walla Walla Valley Wine (July 11-13, 2024) and at the Blood of Gods event (July 20, 2024), a wine meets rock’n’roll and pop art experience.

Experience a blend of short films at Walla Walla Movie Crush

July 5-7, 2024

Showcasing the best American short films of the past year, Walla Walla Movie Crush is a weekend long program broken into one-hour thematic blocks; each block may contain a blend of narratives, documentaries, animation, music videos, and more.  The festivities are kicked off with a package about veterans’ issues, in honor of the organizers’ commitment to the Red Badge Project and its work in Walla Walla.
