For 40 years, Yakima Town Hall has brought internationally renowned speakers to the citizens of the Yakima Valley. These informative, engaging, and entertaining speakers perform in Yakima's "jewel box", the Capitol Theatre, located at 19 South 3rd Street.
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 Capitol Theatre. Today, the fourteen member, all female board furthers that legacy. The 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, data base, development, and community outreach.
Yakima Town Hall is now celebrating its 41st Season of "Give us an hour...we'll bring you the world".
