Downtown Olympia is full of iconic imagery like the Port’s walkable waterfront, historic Capitol dome, artisanal Farmer’s Market, shops, murals, and statuary. These draw in visitors from across the region. The Olympia Downtown Alliance’s key goals support and welcome travelers, businesses, legislators, and families through advocacy, business assistance, imagemaking, and keeping the city’s hub vibrant, clean, and safe.

The Alliance builds partnerships with local businesses, groups, and organizations to do so. Recently they funded a full-time Downtown Maintenance Worker as well as partnering with Valeo, a Tacoma-based non-profit committed to helping houseless individuals re-enter the workforce. This forms a two-way street involving a Work Exchange (WEX) program as well as providing targeted projects for Valeo work crews.
