The history of Arts Walk in Olympia began in 1990, when the first event was organized by Jeanne Allan in conjunction with the Olympia Film Festival. After a starting lineup of 21 businesses and other venues, the Arts Commission began managing Arts Walk in 1991. Arts Walk has been a two-day event since 2011.
