(WALLA WALLA, Wash.) — A visit to Walla Walla is a great idea in any month, but February holds a special place as the valley’s agricultural prowess and acclaimed culinary scene take center stage during the 12th Annual Walla Walla Restaurant Month. The month-long celebration of food — and, of course, wine — will bring chef-curated prix fixe menu offerings, wine and wine tasting specials, attractive lodging packages, and much more to the unofficial capital of Washington wine country.

“While our reputation for outstanding wine and food may have grown, a February visit to Walla Walla is probably one of the best-kept secrets we still have,” says Cara Jacobson, director of marketing for Visit Walla Walla. “Walla Walla Restaurant Month was conceived with this in mind, as a way to invite visitors and encourage locals to immerse themselves in the culinary scene during a quieter and more intimate time of the year.”

With more than 40 offers, Walla Walla Restaurant Month has a variety of offerings to explore for fine and casual dining, wineries and wine tasting, breweries, and lodging. A complete list of participating Walla Walla Restaurant Month partners, which will be updated as offer details are finalized, is available here: wallawalla.org/walla-walla-restaurant-month/. Among the confirmed highlights of Walla Walla Restaurant month include the following:

Named the West’s “Standout Wine-and-Dine Region” in Sunset Magazine’s 2022 Sunset Travel Awards, the quality and variety of Walla Walla’s culinary offerings have grown as the valley’s recognition as a global wine star has risen. During Walla Walla Restaurant Month, that reputation will be on full display and even more accessible to visitors and locals alike.

“We’re fortunate that James Beard finalists, homegrown talent from the Wine Country Culinary Institute, acclaimed chefs who have chosen to make Walla Walla their home, and other highly accomplished individuals showcase their creativity and talent for diners on a daily basis,” says Jacobson. “Whether you’re interested in handmade pasta paired with a glass of Walla Walla Valley wine, a hearty breakfast with a bottomless cup of coffee, or a burger and a local beer, Walla Walla has something for everyone during Walla Walla Restaurant Month.”

Concurrent with Walla Walla Restaurant Month, the annual Walla Walla BrewFest will take place on Saturday, Feb. 18. At least 25 participating breweries and cideries from around the Pacific Northwest will be pouring samples at 16 locations downtown.
