March in Tacoma 2024



March is here and we've found ten ways to "spring" back into the Tacoma scene!


This month we encourage you to enjoy some sweet folk music and history, shop local while sipping on brews, take part in changes at your local community center, run and dance your way through St. Patrick's Day, test your knowledge over a crisp beer, and cheer on our Tacoma Rainiers as they head back to Cheney Stadium.


We'll see you around, Tacoma!

 

March 1st – 2nd


Enjoy a collaborative celebration of folk art and music, from a collection of platforms, generations, and cultures. This two day event kicks off Friday night with a market in Tacoma Arts Live Roosevelt Room, where you can shop local fares and even bring your own instrument to jam with a few of the SuperFolk musicians. Then on Saturday morning, tour the main floor exhibits of the history museum while listening to various artist perform music that punctuates the themes of each gallery. The main event will be held on Saturday night, where you can listen and dance the night away with featured SuperFolk performers, tour the museum, and enjoy more fares from local crafters and food vendors.

March is national reading month! To celebrate, Metro Parks is hosting a FREE family fun event to honor the birthday of none other than the famous author, Dr. Suess. Join fellow book lovers and enjoy crafts, inflatables, games, and Suess- inspired activities at Tacoma’s STAR Center.
