Washington Festivals & Events Association Hall of Fame

The Washington Festivals and Events Association is re-instituting its Hall of Fame, and will recognize individuals who through their exceptional work and achievements have made a significant contribution to the events industry.

“There are many individuals who have made a profound difference in the communities they serve,” said WFEA Executive Director Bruce Skinner. “They have worked many a long day to bring citizens together of all backgrounds to celebrate together.”

Sponsored by Grand Event Rentals of Bothell, individuals will be recognized at a special awards ceremony at the annual WFEA Hall of Fame dinner and auction on Thursday, April 4 at the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue.

“We jumped at the chance to partner with WFEA to make this a reality,” said Eddie Redman of Grand Event Rentals. “Many professionals, volunteers, vendors and supporters have truly made their respective communities a better place to live and we want to be a part of recognizing them.”

Festivals and events throughout the state are invited to nominate worthy event organizers.
