Tacoma is home. Want to know what we love about the sunny summer months here? It’s no secret; check out our list with tips for outdoor dining, city beaches, the best nearby park adventures, and more!
We’ve rustled up 25 events around Tacoma throughout September. There are gatherings to wake us up and guide us toward equity. There are events to call for action, calls to deepen our understanding of diversity, to demand solutions for our beautiful Salish Sea, to hear and acknowledge Native voices, to celebrate our immigrant community. And there are events that invite you to dance all night to ‘90s jams or to eat Norwegian pancakes until you can eat no more. They’re all mixed up together in this list, because that’s what life is like. At least, that’s what it’s like here in Tacoma.
It’s finally here! The Peace Little Free Library is up and open. Duggan, Brooks & Books are grateful to the Tacoma Community House, Rotary Literacy Committee, Brendan Nelson, and Aaron Skwirut for all their help and support in getting this library to its home in the Hilltop Neighborhood of Tacoma. Read all about it!
It’s August and summer is still singing its song. Join the chorus, hum a harmony, bang a gong, it’s up to you. We’re here with 25 Tacoma events to inspire you to get out and into the world while the sun is still strong. Street fairs, arts fests, homeowner education, history pubs, kid markets, literary shenanigans, volunteering and camping in the great outdoors - you can’t go wrong if you just go.
Kimberly Thomas, M. Ed. grew up in Tacoma, graduated from Lincoln High, and works for equity in education. She has a message for us! Brew a cup of coffee and sit down for a conversation with Kim. We’ll explore gentrification. We’ll talk about Kim’s mixed feelings about homeownership, and - on the lighter side- her favorite places in Tacoma.
It’s Tacoma events round-up time again and we’ve gathered 21 June events for your consideration.

Take a look, Tacoma.
