Artists & Performers

Artists, performers and creatives are key partners in inspiring and engaging the community. The innovation, craftsmanship, and engagement of our creative community is the beating heart of Arts Walk and a crown jewel of Olympia.

To feature your artistic talents are Arts Walk, sign up during open registration using one of the following methods:
  • Connect with a local business or organization to host an exhibit of your artform: A good rule of thumb to follow is approach a location you find aesthetically compelling, or has elements that jive well with the character of your work or artform. Present a sample of your work along with a propasal to team up, and once partnership is established, the hosting venue will submit a registration form and fee on your group's behalf.

  • Participate as a vendor at the Arts Market
    Register your interest to participate as a vendor with artworks offered for purchase. The Arts Market occurs during event hours and within a designated area of the downtown street closure in a limited number of booth spaces. Submission of the interest form does not guarantee a reservation. Once registration month closes, potential vendors are followed up with by the Arts Market partner, Gallery Boom to solidify the vendor roster or waitlist status, go over contractural obligations and booth reservation fees.
