Grounds and Pavilion

Play, picnic, and create this summer at the Olympic Sculpture Park! SAM presents an entire summer season packed full of programs that combine visual art, music, and community. All Summer at SAM programs are free, public, and suitable for all ages. There is no outside alcohol permitted in the Olympic Sculpture Park.

Thursday evenings bring the party with performances by Seattle-based musicians, hands-on art activities to inspire your creativity, and rotating local food trucks.

Welcome back to summer! Kick off this season of Summer at SAM with live music and performances presented in partnership with Sonic Guild and art-making curated by Nepantla Cultural Arts.

Sonic Guild Concerts
Dive into the shimmering world of Terra Nobody, an independent alternative pop band. Fronted by trailblazing Black female lead vocalist Ali, her commanding voice interweaves seamlessly with the band's inventive instrumentals.

Chong the Nomad is a 26-year-old Indonesian-American producer, DJ, and artist with an established presence in the sync world.

Art Activities
Utilizing non-toxic water-based spray paint and stencils, teaching artist Scott Mexcal, chosen by Nepantla Cultural Arts, will lead artists of all ages in crafting original artworks inspired by the barrio artists Aztlán.

Gather your friends and snap a group pic in a photo booth with Hello There You, hosted by Alaska Airlines.

Dinner & Drinks
Grab a bite during the concert from local food trucks Kottu and The People’s Burger. Additional snacks and beverages will be available for purchase from Shooby Doo Catering in the PACCAR Pavilion.
