The rural setting that surrounds Ritzville provides the perfect place to relax and escape the daily grind of big city life. Here you can casually stroll through the historic business district, picnic in the well-manicured city park or splash the summer days away in a fabulous water park.
Built on the backs of agriculture and the railroad, Ritzville is a standing tribute to the American Farmer. Its history and heritage is something to be shared and you'll learn a little something around every corner.
Visit vintage buildings - many constructed more than 100 years ago. Cruise the neighborhoods where you'll find numerous homes that have been restored to their original grandeur. Walk the streets of downtown in the National Historic District.
Plan to attend a full roster of events open to the public and family friendly on numerous holidays . Memorial Day weekend includes the Small Town Cache Cow geocaching event with a 15 geocache challenge sponsored by the chamber, the annual car show hosted by the Ritzville Classic Car Club, the annual firemen’s pancake breakfast and a Memorial Day ceremony at the Ritzville Memorial Cemetery.
The sky lights up with a free fireworks display presented by Life Care Center of Ritzville on the Fourth of July. Ritzville is also home to the Wheat Land Communities' Fair on Labor Day Weekend, with exhibits, food vendors, youth exhibits and rip-roaring rodeo action.
The first Saturday in December marks the return of the annual Holiday Bazaar – tradition for more than 40 years where crafts and wares are on display for shoppers to purchase. It’s where you’ll find that perfect gift for someone on your list and might even spot Santa asking each youngster if they’re on the naughty or nice list.
The night before, in downtown Ritzville, is Christmas at the Clock. An official lighting of the Community Christmas Tree by the mayor followed by caroling and treats at the chamber office.
If golf is your game, spend some time driving the links of our 9-hole municipal course. Or walk across the street and enjoy a day in the city park - a traditional gathering place for friends, family neighbors and visitors alike.
Highlighting the relaxing atmosphere is the Ritzville Water Park where visitors of all ages take advantage of a recreational pool that features a zero-depth entry wading area, pop-up jets, a flowing dew drop, the lurking alligator, giant yellow spiraling whitewater slide, diving board and more! The well-stocked concession stand is accessible from both inside the pool area and from the adjacent city park.
