Creating Community Fun at Tumwater’s Artisan Brewfest

Beer fans gathering at Tumwater’s annual Artisan Brewfest will sip on a variety of craft beverages while socializing on 10 open acres at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course. On the green, attendees can enjoy a variety of backyard games and inflatable play equipment, all the while listening to a musical face-off between dueling pianos. Take a break from the summer heat to lounge and laugh with friends on the expansive grounds with a blanket or relax on chairs and tables under the complimentary shaded misting tents.

To take advantage of all the fantastic beverage options vendors are providing, additional drink tokens are available for purchase. Local restaurants are also joining the party with special festival menus perfect for pairing.

This summer event is the perfect way to unite the community through the love of food, drink and fun.

Local attendees can adventure around town and delight in:

  • Serene trails and footbridges along the Deschutes River at Tumwater Falls Park that will lead you to breathtaking waterfalls. Walk among native trees as you enjoy the river, small water pools and moss-covered rocks of all shapes and sizes. Enjoy a romantic meal while overlooking the park at Falls Terrace Restaurant.
  • The Deschutes River also provides a lush plant habitat that fills Tumwater Historical Park. Grill up some food and enjoy any party or gathering under covered shelters and picnic facilities. Trails, river access and a delightful children’s playground are fantastic for any member of the family to explore and let out extra energy.
  • Originally owned by the founder of the Olympia Brewing Company, The Schmidt House is a step back in time. The elegant Centennial Rose Garden on the grounds also reflects the classic beauty of this historic national treasure. Graceful native gardens, a reflection pool and European statues brought back from by Leopold Schmidt add an extra flair of romance to this historic landmark.
  • Barclift Park provides three acres full of outdoor activities. Feast on a picnic with family, jump on play structures and walk on trails that thread through the park. For some friendly competition, a half-basketball court and tennis court provide an arena for games.
  • Two separate parks are fantastic for relaxing at Capitol Lake. Walk around the lake while enjoying views of the Washington State Capitol building, downtown Olympia, and the south Puget Sound.

    Attended this brewfest two years ago. Can you say “monumental rip-off?!?

    5 Tokens? Oh yes, for the price of admission and parking, standing in long lines, broiling in the summer sun for a three or four ounce mini glass of beer is BS. In total, we spent about $70 for perhaps 30 ounces of beer. Actually, we grew so tired of standing in long lines for a refill of 3 ounces, we gave half the tokens away and left.

    Unless, they’ve changed the format and provide more “misting tents,” issue larger “complimentary” sampling glasses (plastic) and speed up the process of getting a beer, don’t go!!!

    • Doug,
      It’s unfortunate you feel that way. We are grateful to have a City like Tumwater that cares deeply for its residents and puts on numerous community events for free such as the Independence Parade, fireworks show, etc. It is each persons choice to attend the Brewfest or not and when one buys a ticket to the Brewfest it does include alot. We are fortunate to be able to support community events like the Brewfest and will continue to do so. It is your choice on whether to attend or not.
