Olympia Funk Festival – Funk OFF! will make its debut in Olympia, WA with a lineup of national touring acts and local PNW favorites.

Set for February 2nd–4th, 2024, the new festival will take place at two historic venues in Downtown Olympia, The Capitol Theater and Olympia Ballroom, with food trucks, band merch, and other merrymaking activities conveniently located on Washington Street between the two buildings. The festival is presented by the PARC Foundation of Thurston County and “a host of awesome local businesses and nonprofits.”

Among the artist lineup for the inaugural Olympia Funk Festival are imported talent like George Porter Jr. & The Runnin’ Pardners, Ron Artis II & The Truth, and The Rumble Ft. Chief Joseph Boudreaux Jr. and bands from Seattle and Portland including modern Afro-beat ensemble Polyrhythmics, funk collective Eldridge Gravy & the Court Supreme, beloved Joe Doria-led organ trio McTuff, jam upstarts Swindler, Portland punk blues duo Hillstomp, and PNW funk supergroup Outer Orbit. Skerik and Joe Doria will serve as artists-at-large.
