This years events will be taking place on Friday, April 22 from 5 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, April 23 from Noon to 8 p.m. If you haven’t been to one, Arts Walk is an event that takes over downtown twice a year, closing the streets to cars so people can wander seeing art and performances by local artists on the sidewalks of Olympia and in various downtown businesses.
