What is Yakima Town Hall?

In 1971, a visionary group of energetic, curious Yakima Valley women embarked on a mission to enrich our community by bringing nationally and internationally recognized speakers from the literary, political, artistic, and business worlds to Yakima's historic "jewel box," the Capitol Theatre. Today, the fourteen-member, all-female board furthers that legacy. Yakima Town Hall board members work throughout the year, volunteering their time and talents to investigate, procure funding for, and contract each season's speakers. In addition, this group works together to master the more technical aspects of event planning: logistics, hospitality, marketing, publishing, accounting, database, development, and community outreach.

Yakima Town Hall is now celebrating its 48th season of "Give us an hour ... we'll bring you the world."


"Dinner, lecture, wonderful wines...tres bon! Now you must all look me up in New York City during your travels. I've left you my secret list of treasured restaurants. Adieu." - Jacques Pepin, World Premier Chef, Author, and Culinary Teacher
