Arts and Culture Events in Tacoma and Pierce County

Celebrating the facets of Pierce County

Tacoma Night Market (Year Round)
Highly curated, locally made goods are the headliner, but the food trucks, well-stocked bar, and live music are a pretty compelling opening act at the Tacoma Night Market every third Saturday of the month at Alma Mater Tacoma.
Tacoma Pride (July)
With events throughout the region and most of the month of July, the Tacoma Pride Festival honors the LGBTQA community in the South Puget Sound.
Ethnic Fest (July)
For more than 30 years, Ethnic Fest has celebrated culture and community through art, dance, food, and music from across the globe.
Art on the Ave (July)
6th Avenue is Tacoma's young, eclectic district, and when you give them an excuse to put art in the spotlight, you get Tacoma's largest arts-based annual event.
Tacoma Arts Month (October)
Artists throughout Tacoma open their studios, and venues across the region host events, workshops, readings, screenings, and lectures during this full-month celebration of everything artistic.
