LoveOly SummerFest is back in historic Downtown Olympia! So are the amazing live music and performances, activities for kids and families. You'll also enjoy interactive art installations from local artists, local community groups, and a Biergarten with local seasonal libations from 3 Magnets Brewing Co., Well 80 Brewhouse and Whitewood Cider Co. LoveOly SummerFest 2022 will take place every Saturday in August, from 1 pm to 7 pm.

Supersuckers will kick-off the summer concert series on Saturday, August 6
The Supersuckers were formed in Tucson, Arizona, in 1988 by high school friends Eddie Spaghetti (born Edward Carlyle Daly III, bass, vocals), Ron Heathman (guitar), Dan "Thunder" Bolton (guitar), Dancing Eagle (born Dan Seigal, drums), and Eric Martin (lead vocals).

Activities for Kids Powered by Hands On Children's Museum
But SummerFest is not just about watching, it’s about doing. The Activities Area will include ping-pong, bean bag toss, a jumbo chess set, sidewalk chalk, and more powered by Hands On Children's Museum.

Art Installations Powered by Dave Sederberg
Local artist Dave Sederberg, known for his recent installation “Glowhenge”, is coordinating a cadre of local artists to install interactive and engaging art.

Youth Band Showcase
In addition to headline bands, buskers, children’s performers, and community groups will entertain attendees. SummerFest will welcome a Youth Band Showcase this year along with buskers such as jugglers, contortionists, and street musicians will wow audiences with their talent. Local community groups such as The Bridge Music Project and Olympia Symphony orchestra will respectively produce dance and beat-making competitions and feature local, professional musicians.
