The Olympia Acoustic Festival, is an event that is an all day celebration of the collaboration and diverse acoustically driven music and artists of the Pacific Northwest. Euphoria Tea Productions, Archibald Sisters, Fish Tail Brewery, Olympia Ballroom, and The Urban Onion have all made this event possible with their sponsorship and the day won’t disappoint.  We held our first event last year with amazingly beautiful support from the community. It’s not hard to embrace the music of this region! It will be held again in the beautiful historic Olympia Ballroom and the Urban Onion downstairs.

The event will take place on March 29 with acts beginning at 1 p.m. and playing until midnight.  The Main Stage Acts can be seen in the Olympia Ballroom and the Second Stage Acts will be heard in the Urban Onion.

Local arts and food vendors will be featured on the mezzanine. And an indoor beer garden in the Ballroom after 7pm.

This Year we have an awesome line up. Please check out the performer’s collective websites, listen, like and share.  Ticket sales opened on February 14th 2014.
