The birthplace of Washington’s wine industry, Prosser has the Yakima River running through it and more than 30 wineries and tasting rooms surrounding it. The skies above town are saturated with vibrant hues during September’s Balloon Festival, while art galleries, antique stores, a restored historic theater that features musical and theatrical performances, and a historical museum are year-round draws.
Stroll through Prosser’s historic downtown district and explore fine-art galleries, antique stores and quaint shops. Prosser's local wineries, two breweries and a distillery welcome and encourage you to taste the nectar of the fruit grown in the Yakima Valley. Sample gourmet vegetables and condiments, each with its own unique flavor, complemented by the perfect wine. Visit TourProsser.com for more information and a calendar of local events.
