Downtown Olympia’s Third Thursdays are a community celebration of local culture, art, food, music, and unique shopping experiences.

Participating businesses host creative in-store promotions and activities, including artist receptions, book signings, special treats, discounts and more. The streets are all set to live music from buskers and the mood is vibrant. Whether you make it a date night, a fun outing with friends or a family adventure, there is so much to discover downtown.

A fun element of each Third Thursday is the Challenge Game! Stop by our info the corner of 4th & Washington and pick up a Challenge Game or pick up the Challenge Game at a Third Thursday business. Participants can visit each business to get another letter to solve the phrase of the month. Complete the phrase first and enter to win a prize! We love to see so many groups of friends and families return month after month to participate in the Challenge Game. Challenge Game prizes in April will come from Three Magnets, The PopinJay, and Hot Toddy!
