Arts Walk Event Shuttle to Connect Downtown Locations

Fall Arts walk takes place Friday, October 5 (5‐10 p.m.) and Saturday, October 6 (Noon‐5p.m.). This year introduces a new shuttle to connect downtown locations and increase event accessibility. An event mini-bus will loop the downtown area on both Friday & Saturday during regular event times. Pick up locations will be at The Olympia Center, near the LOTT’s Wet Science Center, Artesian Well, Arts Walk Core, and near Columbia St & 5th Avenue. The shuttle is free and wheelchair accessible. The exact route can be found in both the online interactive map and the printed event maps, available now at participating downtown business, The Olympia Center and Olympia City Hall.

About Arts Walk

Olympia Arts Walk is a semi-annual community event celebrating the arts both regionally and nationally. Since October 1990, thousands gather in downtown Olympia in both the fall and spring for a festive arts experience that uses creativity to connect and engage people. 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.

Attendees are encouraged to carpool or take public transportation to and from the event. Please be aware of event related street closures and tow zones.

Arts Walk is presented by the City of Olympia Parks, Arts & Recreation Department and Olympia Arts Commission, with support from Art House Designs, Capitol City Press, Capitol Heating & Cooling, Timberland Bank, MIXX 96fm and Oly Arts.
