Quincy is located near the center of Washington State just 10 miles North of I-90. Quincy is the gateway to the Wenatchee Valley, Leavenworth and the Okanogan Valley if you are traveling from the South or East. Tourism is a major part of our economy. The Gorge Amphitheater
, which draws an estimated 3,000 to 20,000 people per concert, is located 10 miles southwest of Quincy. Sunland Estates summer homes and the Crescent Bar Recreation
area all add to our tourism along with the already available hunting, fishing, and boating. We can call Quincy a tourist and recreational paradise.
Our economic base is provided by agriculture related industries (processing, shipping, storage & supplying) with over 200,000 acres of irrigated land under production, all types of seed and vegetable, crops are grown along with large acreage's of soft fruits. We receive our electricity from Grant County Public Utility District (PUD). Cascade Natural Gas provides the citizens with the option for natural gas. We are on the main line of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad with approximately 24 trains daily. Presently the City has several large processing plants, that process fresh vegetables, potatoes, apples, and soft fruit.
The City of Quincy has a population of 7,000 with a rural community total population of approximately 13,000. City facilities include a Library, Aquatic Center, six parks with picnic sites (three parks have covered picnic shelters) and a museum. The surrounding cities provide for an increase in tourism around the area. Ice Age Floods and the Columbia River Basalt Flows helped form the geology of the surrounding area making it a fun place to hike, explore and climb.
