About Tacoma Arts Month

Celebrate arts. Experience culture.

October is brimming with arts and culture events, exhibits, and workshops for all ages. There is something for everyone to enjoy: music, dance, and theater performances; hands-on experiences; visual art exhibits; literary readings; lectures; workshops; film screenings; and cultural events. Many of the activities are free and most are family friendly.

All you have to do is choose what you want to enjoy. Take this opportunity to experience something new as we celebrate Tacoma’s cultural community.

New for 2022! After a two-year pause we are bringing back the much anticipated Tacoma Studio Tour this October. We are also reprising Arts at the Armory this December. Two unique events to brighten up your fall, each showcasing Tacoma creatives.
