2021 Temporary Shifts

Keeping with the current CDC and State reopening guidelines, outdoor in-person performances and gatherings are allowed in Thurston County and can be included as part of Arts Month. Facemasks are required. (Updated on 9/30/2021)

For the fall event we're excited to welcome back street closure activities happening on October 2 from 12-6pm, and throughout the month we will highlight art displays, programs and activities presented by participating locations and artists. This is a hybrid approach to the event we know and love.

Additionally, registration for participating locations will continue on a "pay what you can" basis for fall of 2021. This is a temporary accommodation to support local businesses and our creative community.

Join us to celebrate Olympia's vibrant arts community.

Procession of the Species on pause for 2021

Earthbound Productions has also informed us that they do not have plans for Procession of the Species for 2021. Be sure to visit their website for most up to date information.
