ThurstonTalk’s Weekend Event Calendar For Olympia


Last week was a relatively quiet one for events.  Instead of our regular weekend event calendar, we posted a super list of all the major events and festivals that happen in Olympia.  You can find dates for the beloved Pet Parade, very popular Procession of the Species, and the action packed Sand in the City weekend.  Start filling in these weekends now.  ThurstonTalk promises loads of coverage of all the awesome events happening in our community.  You can find the 2013 Festival and Major Event Calendar by clicking here.

Even though we are months away from Spring Arts Walk, which kicks off the event “season,” keep ThurstonTalk’s event calendar handy so that you can plan your activities with family and friends.

Here are some highlights for what is happening this weekend in Olympia.

  • Fearless razor clam diggers will brave the weather to capture clams.  Tides occurring all weekend.  Info on this family friendly activity  can be found here.
  • It may feel like Spring is a long ways off but baseball leagues are organizing youth teams now.  Capitol Little League is holding their first of two in-person registration days on Saturday.
  • Marchetti Wines is opening it’s tasting room in downtown Olympia.  Celebrate on Saturday between 1:00 – 7:00 pm.
  • Many of us will be glued to our TV sets on Sunday, watching the Seahawks battle the Falcons.  Read about four Olympia residents that perform with the Sea Gals.
  • Finally, if you are looking for some additional motivation to stay on top of those New Year’s goals, read this post which summarizes all of our health and fitness content that was published this month.
