Submit an Event

Promote your event to visitors

Thank you for your interest in submitting an event to the Experience Olympia & Beyond calendar! The festivals and events that happen here help make our community shine. To make the process easy, we have laid out a few basic guidelines to successfully have events posted on the website.

Events must be open to the public and visitor friendly. We want to refer visitors to events that they can show up to, day-of and enjoy. Events that are pre-sale only may be subject for review. Membership-based events, fundraisers (raise the paddle, charity golf tournaments etc.), promotional and sales events may not be listed and are subject to review. Events happening outside of Thurston County may only be accepted on a case by case basis; member businesses will be given preference. 

Please allow up to five business days for approval. Ideal event entries will include a hyperlink for more information and an engaging image visitors can connect with. Images should be 611x640 pixels, OR roughly square in shape.

If you have any questions, please contact the VCB team at with subject line Events Calendar Inquiry.
