Dave!Does your home town host any annual gatherings, festivals, or events? This is a very small city, but that doesn't stop us from hosting the annual "Founder's Day Parade" (happening this weekend, coincidentally enough) and "Apple Days" (first weekend in October). It's kind of nice, I suppose, but anything we do pales in comparison to the neighboring city of Leavenworth (which I talk about here).

What is the "claim to fame" of your home town... what is it famous for? The "Early American City" of Cashmere, Washington has three things that are somewhat noteworthy...

  • Pioneer Village and Museum. Twenty authentic old pioneer buildings have been relocated to the museum here and is pretty cool. My grandfather (who used to be the barber in town) donated some of the tools that are on display in the barber shop building. They also have a comprehensive display of American Indian artifacts from the area, that is one of the best anywhere.
  • Aplets & Cotlets Candy Factory. Makers of famous Aplets (apple-walnut) and Cotlets (apricot-walnut) candies and other fine confections. Since they pass out free samples, it's a popular stop between Leavenworth and Wenatchee for tourists in the area.
  • Tree Top Apple Juice Factory. Though Tree Top corporate headquarters are in Selah, Washington, Cashmere is home to one of their processing facilities which handles fruit from local growers.

What's something about your home town that is NOT so great? You are constantly having to run to the nearby city of Wenatchee (20 minutes away) for just about everything and anything. We have a grocery store, a few mini marts, a couple restaurants, and assorted shops... but most everything you end up having to drive to Wenatchee for eventually (that's where the movie theaters are as well).

FQ ARCHITECT: Invent a new attraction to bring even more fame and fortune to your home town. I'd think a shrine to me would be a massive hit! People could come from around the world to pay their respects to Dave, learn his life story, and have big fun... it could be like Neverland Ranch, but without the inappropriate touching... I think I'll call it "DaveLand" - "The Daviest Place on Earth!"

    I like all the vegetarian food chains you’re opening,yumm! I think you should wait on opening this park after you start making money off the patented bread slicer, you’ll have more money and will be worshipped by many then.

    At least your town isn’t known for its annual Cow Chip Festival. Yup, the town next to us had a Cow Chip Festival. Cue the excitement & mayhem.
