December in Tacoma


The holidays are finally here and Tacoma is full of spirit, life, and hope. This month we've found ways to safely spread holiday cheer virtually and in person. Markets, food drives, lighted displays, and local music are still very much alive this year, even if they look a little different. Come "join" us as we drink for a cause, shop for some local art and goods, support our neighbors, and enjoy some magical shows and displays from the warmth of our homes (and vehicles).

November 27th - January 3rd

Zoo Lights

It seems no winter in Pierce County is complete without a stroll through the glittering bulbs of Zoolights. With over 700,000 shimmering LEDs lovingly sculpted to create wonderful seascapes, animal shenanigans, and PNW views, this event is sure to bring some “normalcy” back to this strange year. Tickets are online pre-purchase only, as each ticket will be registered for a time slot to avoid over-crowding. Additionally, a one-way path has been marked and of course masks are required. Food stands will be open throughout the campus, so you’ll still be able to enjoy that hot cocoa! Come safely celebrate 32 shimmering years at PDZA now through January 3rd.

December 3rd – January 8th
