Olalla is a small unincorporated community in Kitsap County, Washington, United States. It is located on Colvos Passage onPuget Sound just north of the Pierce County county line. Olalla used to be larger than Port Orchard, county seat of Kitsap County. A former logging area, Olalla now partially relies on tourism, hosting an annual Polar Bear Jump on January 1 and Bluegrass Festival the third Saturday in August. Olalla is now a residential community for commuters to nearby cities and towns, although a working-class population from the logging days still remains.
Its name is the Salishan and Chinook Jargon word for "berry" or "berries" (usually olallie or ollalie in most lexicons of the Jargon).
The Olalla Community Club has been operated by Marty Kellogg and his family since the early eighties. An old original church stands just down the street from the Club and is being used to this day. The former pioneers church Pastor lived right across the street from the Church.
