2023 Highlights

Zillah Teapot Visitor Center Attracts People Nationally – The Zillah Teapot Visitor Center is operating Wednesday – Saturday with a relatively set schedule, and hours do expand when volunteers are available. New merchandise has proven popular.

Zillah Banquet & Auction – After a several year hiatus, we relaunched the popular Zillah Auction and it was a success! We had a great turnout at the Wine Event Center at Zillah Lakes and raised several thousand dollars for our scholarships. It was a terrific event and we look forward to building on this past year’s success.

2023 Scholarships Awarded – We distributed a record amount of scholarship money to five Zillah High School Students

Social Media – We are active on social media which not only keeps our community involved in Zillah, it brings visitors and business to Zillah also. We often hear what a dynamic community we must have based on an average of 20 posts per month on Facebook alone celebrating all things Zillah. Peak posts will often reach at least 2,500 with active engagement numbers. Our top post for 2023 so far reached over 10,000 people with engagement of 1,500+ people for Jones Farms and Community Days reached almost 10,000 people. The post we did on the press release for Zillah’s Teapot being on the Harley Davidson Road trip site reached nearly 6,000 people.

And when you’re a Zillah Chamber Member, you get dedicated posts for you and your business and events. You can even supply the content if desired, and if not, we create it for you!
