South Puget Sound Community College announced that it has partnered with the City of Olympia to transform the former Ben Moore’s restaurant into Percival Place at Ben Moore’s. The special event location will provide the college the opportunity to return to downtown Olympia, bringing with it its mission of education and workforce development.
“This has been a great collaboration with the City of Olympia,” SPSCC president Timothy Stokes said on Facebook. “The Clipper Nation is returning to downtown Olympia … to share with our community [an] art gallery, food, Brewing and Distilling Tasting Room, live music and an events space.”
The first event to take place in the new space will be a celebration of Olympia’s Spring Arts Walk. On Friday and Saturday, Percival Place at Ben Moore’s will host live music, local art, performance, short films and workshops.
