Tualatin Valley Creates (formerly the Westside Cultural Alliance) recently participated in a national study commissioned by the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5. The study found that more than 360,000 people attended arts and culture events in Washington County in 2015, spending an average of $20 per person, per event outside the cost of admission. Almost 1/3 of those attendees lived outside of Washington County.
During the summer, Oregon's seven regions, as recognized by Travel Oregon, submitted cooperative regional plan proposals for the use of the transient lodging taxes collected by the state. Each plan aligns with Travel Oregon's Strategic Plan. As part of the Portland Region, the WCVA and our regional partners collaborated to devise a plan that will enhance our region's awareness and diverse tourism offering.
