The little town of Tieton, near Yakima, may seem a little lonely. It’s actually a hive of activity, thanks to the artists/crafters/entrepreneurs who have moved there and are busy painting and sculpting and letter-pressing and brewing. Mighty Tieton (as some of its new residents like to call it) invites the curious to drop by for the annual town open house, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, April 26. The Mighty Tieton Warehouse will be open, as will Tieton Lofts Gallery (home of the Tieton Mosaic Project). Brunch and happy-hour specials will be spread out around Tieton Park, as will a pop-up market with cheese, cider, eggs, antiques, that kind of thing.

Note: The Tieton goings-on coincide with the Yakima Valley’s 35th annual Spring Barrel Weekend, during which wineries from Yakima to the Tri-Cities offer tastings of brand-new vintages before they are bottled. The forecast for that weekend looks good — partly cloudy, but only a 10% chance of rain. (Real-time results may vary.)
