This August Mary Olsen Farm will be transformed into a magical world full of immersive light art installations created by local artists. LUSIO Lights Festival will literally light up the historic farm which is regarded as King County’s best-preserved subsistence farm. Best of all, the event is completely free.
This is the 5th annual LUSIO Lights Festival and if you’ve attended in years past you know that the festival normally takes place in Capito Hill’s Volunteer Park. However, due to construction, the festival has relocated to the beautiful Mary Olsen Farm which has a 100-year-old barn, livestock, farmhouse, creek, and orchard. Beyond the farm’s stunning backdrop, it also provides plenty of space for visitors to social distance.

Visitors can expect to see light art installations of all shapes, sizes, and formats curated to blend into nature. The festival encourages you to explore, play, get inspired, and of course, appreciate some art! Beyond the visuals, you’ll also be able to enjoy a curation of sounds from local artists & DJs that tie the whole experience together.
If you end up going, the festival asks that you RSVP to help them with their future endeavors. They also encourage you to dress up in your most glowing outfits but ask you to leave the pups at home due to the animals on the farm property. So grab your friends, family or SO as there’s something for everyone at this festival. You can learn more by clicking below.
