Olympia Arts Walk is a semi-annual community event celebrating the arts. In a typical year, thousands gather in downtown Olympia in both the Spring and Fall for a festive arts experience that uses creativity to connect and engage. Many of our unique downtown businesses and organizations transform their spaces into creative hubs filled with art, demonstrations, and performances. In the streets and sidewalks you will find pop up performances and places to connect around almost every corner.

Arts Walk is a program of the City of Olympia Department of Parks, Arts & Recreation and the Arts Commission, with support provided by local businesses, artists and community partners.
