Friends Night Out is coming to Downtown Olympia!

A Celebration of the Arts, Local Food, Unique Shopping, Music…and Supports Homes First!

You asked, we listened! Friends Night Out, once part of OlyThirdThursday, is moving to its own night, Friday, November 8, 2019!

Here’s how it works: purchase a $15 passport and then visit the list of participating businesses — such as Bittersweet Chocolates, Radiance Herbs, Compass Rose and Captain Little Toy Store, to name a few — who will stamp your passport and give you a unique gift. Proceeds from the sale of the passports go to Homes First, a nonprofit providing safe, healthy, affordable rental homes for those who need them most.

Purchase passports online or on November 8 at The Popinjay or Sound and Vision. Participants will receive a list of participating businesses and a special event bag. Every “Passport” also comes with a raffle entry for a prize package of gift certificates of participating retailers. Shoppers can earn more tickets with purchases at participating retailers. Passports are limited - only 250 available and are $15 each.

A few of the participating businesses include Sound and Vision Living, Drees, State of the Arts Gallery and Gifts, Archibald Sisters, The Painted Plate, The Popinjay, Captain Little, Belleza Ropa, Compass Rose, Childhood’s End Gallery and Octapas Café.
