Shopping 10 am to 8 pm
Girls Night Out is an all day event enticing hundreds of women shoppers into downtown Olympia!
New this year! FREE parking for goodie bag purchasers!
What makes this event different than any others? It is a fundraiser benefiting a local cause. This year, proceeds from the goodie bags will go to Olympia Union Gospel Mission. Past causes have been YWCA – The Other Bank, the Downtown Graffiti Management Program, SafePlace, Thurston County Food Bank and Olympia Artspace Alliance. Plus this annual event climaxes with a fun reception where amazing prizes donated by downtown businesses will be raffled off!
Here’s how it works. Women who want to come to Girls Night Out must purchase a ticket for a goodie bag (supplies limited). Pre-purchase your goodie bag between April 26 and May 16 for $10. On May 17 it will be $15. Pre-purchase locations are: Olympia Downtown Association (116 5th Ave SE, Suite F), Courtyard Antiques (705 4th Ave E) and Vivala (111 Market St NE). You can also pre-purchase your goodie bag by calling (360) 357-8948.
Look for the pink balloons and event posters identifying the many participating businesses. You will be given one raffle ticket for every $10 you spend at the participating businesses. So the more you spend, the more chances you have of winning fabulous raffle prizes! Then at the end of the event come to the reception. The reception is at 8:30 pm at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, 512 Washington St SE. Doors open at 8 pm. At the reception you will enjoy complimentary appetizers and a no-host bar and mingle with all the ladies. You do not need to be present to win in the raffle.
