Fall Arts Walk Adapts This Year's Event

Instead of a Two-Day, Large-scale Event, They are Shifting to an Arts Month for 2020.

Arts Walk in Olympia is typically a time many of us look forward to - it's a way to come together as a community twice a year, to celebrate the fantastic arts and culture our community has to offer. They are excited to share that they are adapting the Fall event to make it possible for this tradition to continue. Instead of a two-day, large-scale event, they are shifting to an Arts Month for 2020. Throughout October, they will highlight in-person displays of art, as well as virtual programs and activities presented by participating locations and artists. Keeping with the current CDC and State guidelines, in-person performances and gatherings will not be part of this Arts Month.

Arts Walk programs and activities can include, but are not limited to:

  • Works of art on display indoors and outdoors 
  • Virtual performances & events
  • Workshops and programs that meet state guidelines
  • Film programs that meet state guidelines
  • Take-out art activities
  • Highlighting recently installed murals and public art

They are now accepting applications from local artists, organizations, businesses and groups that would like to participate in Arts Month. 

  • The fall 2020 program will be open to locations throughout Olympia.
  • All activities must meet local and state guidelines, and organizations must provide a social distancing plan for their site or activity.
  • To support our creative community, all registration fees will be waived for Fall 2020. 
  • Registration is limited to the first 100 applications. 
  • Priority Deadline to register is September 21, with additional registration as capacity allows.
