Event Submission Guidelines
The purpose of Experience Olympia’s online events calendar is to feature events with appeal wide enough to attract out-of-area visitors to travel to Thurston County for overnight stays. We also list smaller, more community-focused events that are welcoming and relevant to visitors as well as residents. The primary audience for the calendar is visitors, in keeping with our mission.
Criteria for Inclusion
The event must be open to the public.
Based on Experience Olympia & Beyond’s mission, only Thurston County and close-in regional events in outlying counties will be listed.
Non-visitor events, including meetings, conventions, auctions, clinics, seminars, etc. will be shared on the Community Events Calendar.
We no longer include virtual-only events. Experience Olympia & Beyond promotes visitation to Thurston County by featuring live events for guests to attend while traveling to the area. As online-only events do not encourage visits to Thurston County, they do not fit our calendar.
We encourage you to submit events at least 30 days in advance to allow for the most effective planning by visitors.
First, search the calendar for your event to make sure it hasn’t already been entered.
Use the form below to submit your event. Enter as much information as possible about your event (images and/or graphics highly recommended).
Once submitted, your event will be reviewed by Experience Olympia & Beyond and posted to our calendar. Experience Olympia & Beyond may edit event information for grammar, style and accuracy. Entries will be reviewed and posted within 3 business days of submission. Note: If Experience Olympia & Beyond has its own article or description of your event, your submission will be merged with that content.
