Music In The Park

Music in the Park Every Sunday in July!

We are excited to announce the return of the beloved Music in the Park concert series to Olympia in July 2023! This highly anticipated event promises a season of quality music that will have attendees dancing while enjoying the beautiful Sylvester Park and the scenic views from Port of Olympia's Port Plaza.

Music in the Park is a free outdoor concert series that showcases local and regional musicians, bringing some of the best northwest musical talent downtown. Attendees can sit back and take in the outdoors, while they enjoy live music in a relaxing and inviting environment.

The series attracts between 600 to several thousand attendees per show, making it a popular community event. Down North will kick off the first concert of the season, taking place on July 2 at the Port Plaza. The remaining four performances will take place at Sylvester Park, featuring Groove Lab on July 9, Show Brazil on July 16, The Pine Hearts on July 23, and Platinum Soul on July 30. All shows run from 1 to 2 pm.

Join the Olympia Downtown Alliance at Music in the Park on July 30 from 1 pm to 2 pm at Sylvester Park, 615 Washington St SE, Olympia, WA 98501, for the 5th and final 2023 Music in the Park Concert featuring Platinum Soul. This is a FREE concert series thanks to our incredible sponsors.

Platinum Soul is a soul band with soulful vocals, an exciting horn section, and a tight rhythm section. The band is made up of members that have performed in some of the more well-known groups around the Northwest that have thrilled audiences for many years. Groups such as: Jonah's Whale, Ready Made Family, The Carter Experience, and Rich Wetzel's Groovin' High Orchestra, to name a few. Platinum Soul believes that music is the universal language that brings people of all backgrounds together. You'll laugh, you may even shed a tear of joy because a song that we play will take you back to that special memory. But most of all, you'll dance and have a funky good time to the music of Platinum Soul!

The Olympia Downtown Alliance encourages attendees to come early to enjoy all that downtown Olympia has to offer. Shop and brunch before the show or bring a blanket or chair, bubbles for the kids and embrace the best of summertime with family and friends in the park.  Event attendees are also welcome and encouraged to stop by a local restaurant and pick up lunch and enjoy a picnic while being entertained.
