Dogs are always welcome at the Olympic Sculpture Park, but tonight it’s all about the pets you adore. Celebrate your canine companions with treats and activities during this special night of puppy love.
Pet owners are asked to please clean up after your dogs. There will also be water bowls placed along the Z-Path so visiting pets can stay hydrated. All dogs must be on a six-foot leash.
SAM Performs: 6:30-8 pm
The sometimes swirly, sometimes peppy, always dreamy local sounds of Ephrata are perfect for summer at the park. Their sugary vocal harmonies, lush soundscapes of shoegazey guitar, and sixties “wall of sound” power are mixed with a dose of dream pop and psychedelia.
SAM Creates: 6-8 pm

Tonight’s tour will be led by local artist, Allison Kudla. In her most recent projects, Kudla has been exploring the combination of patterns, fabrication technologies and plant tissue cultures to make living installations.
