Summer Nights at the Port

Saturday Nights, July 23, July 30 and August 13, 2022 – Outdoor Movie Events


If you like FREE, family-friendly fun, you’ll love the Port of Olympia’s Summer Nights at the Port (formerly Movies at the Marina) outdoor events. Join us Saturday nights, July 23 and 30, and August 13, on the lower lot next to the Swantown Marina’s boat trailer parking lot at NorthPoint (1210 Marine Drive NE, Olympia 98501).

Each event will include a beer garden presented by our friends at Nicole’s Bar with all proceeds benefiting 4 the Love Foundation. Guests will enjoy the sounds of live musicians, and enjoy local food truck fare while they take in the beautiful backdrop of the South Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
