Annie, Wine, and Walla Walla Sweet Onions

July 03, 2018

Downtown shopping, wine tasting, our own onion festival, and performances of “Annie: The Musical” are only a few of the events on the calendar this month. First, join us on Thursday, July 12 in downtown Walla Walla for the “Downtown Sip & Stroll.” Local merchants will offer special sales and giveaways, and complimentary snacks will provide the ideal accompaniment for local wine sipping. Be sure to watch for the balloons of participating merchants. Next, don’t miss the annual Walla Walla Sweet Onion Festival on Saturday, July 21, where there will be family-friendly “funion” for all!

Finally, catch a performance of “Annie: The Musical” from July 27-August 5 at the Gesa Power House Theatre. Part of the Walla Walla Summer Stage Series, the musical is based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray and has been adapted into two movies in addition to the Broadway play, where it won seven Tony Awards. Directed by former New York director and Walla Walla native Tyson Kaup, Annie’s story is sure to captivate audiences of all ages. For times and tickets, click here.
