Gesa Powerhouse Theater

Gesa Power House Theatre

The historic Gesa Power House Theatre is a world-class, 330-seat performing arts theatre located in downtown Walla Walla, Washington. The 120-year-old building was once the Walla Walla Gas Plant, originally built to produce coal gas that was piped underground to light the streets, businesses, and homes of Walla Walla. The building was converted to generate electricity around the year 1905 by installing steam driven dynamos and transformers. In 2011, the interior of the building was transformed into a state-of-the-art performing arts theater.

Dust Devils and Gesa Stadium

For over 14 years, Gesa has partnered with the Tri-City Dust Devils to provide fun, affordable family entertainment at Gesa Stadium in Pasco, which hosts the team’s home games as well as other community events like the City of Pasco’s Grand Old 4th Celebration each Independence Day.

In 2019, Gesa Stadium received $2 million in stadium updates for LED lighting improvements and upgrades in the general admission and lower box seating. The 2021 season marked a new chapter for the team as they became the Los Angeles Angels’ High-A long season affiliate. Their longer season runs from May to September, and the team is committed to following state guidelines to ensure a safe and fun environment for players and fans alike.

Gesa Carousel of Dreams

This over 130-year-old piece of history has had visitors from all 50 states and around the world. Construction of the facility and installation of the vintage 1910 Charles Carmel Carousel was funded in large part through Gesa’s commitment to providing the Tri-Cities community with a year-round venue for arts, entertainment, weddings, and parties – it’s the perfect place to create happy memories!

The Carousel is committed to providing safe activities for community members and offers accessible fun for all ages.
