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 presale only, require attendance across multiple dates or are located outside of Thurston County will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Membership-based events, fundraisers (raise the paddle, charity golf tournaments etc.), promotional, political or sales events may not be listed and are subject to review.  Member business events 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.
