When: Saturday, June 27, 2015, 11:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Where: State Capitol Campus in Olympia — find us on the lawn by S. Diagonal (see map below). From Interstate 5: take exit 105, following the signs for the State Capitol. Drive a short way on 14th Ave SE to a traffic circle and stop light at Jefferson St SE. Continue straight on 14th Ave SE and through the tunnel. When you reach the stop light at Capitol Way S, you will see the action on the lawn across the street along S Diagonal on the capitol campus. Parking at the state capitol is free on weekends — just be careful to watch the signs and avoid assigned spaces.
