OLY ARTS: Summer Edition Available Now!

If you attended Capital Lakefair, you met the OLY ARTS "street team" of smiling distributors. They greeted visitors with hot-off-the-press copies of our debut summer print edition! If you steered clear of Lakefair, you still have plenty of chances to meet us in person this summer, starting with Music in the Park.

In Olympia, every Wednesday, you can set out picnic blankets and enjoy free, live entertainment at Music in the Park with little more than a dab of sunscreen. Here's our overview of Music in the Park. Next week's band is featured below. 

This OLY ARTS newsletter is your summer digest of live entertainment in the Olympia area, July 21-27:
