Olympia Old Time Music Festival

Even if you’re not a musician or into Old Time Music, this event kicks energy as the best place to listen and learn about old ­fashioned string music from Appalacia to the Pacific Northwest. Learn all about the historic musical influences on and instruments in Old Time, just a minute with the experts, join a workshop, or just come and dance your heart out on the floor of downtown’s Olympic Ballroom.
