tacoma spring fest
We apologize for having to make this decision with such short notice but due to a rash of COVID-related dropouts that happened this evening for the Sunday portion of this show, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel the second day of Tacoma Spring Fest
We understand what short notice this is and are very sorry for the inconvenience we know this may cause, but we feel that if we were to continue tomorrow’s show with such an incomplete vendor lineup, it would not be a worthwhile day for anyone, nor would it represent UCU well for those just discovering us for the first time.
We are so saddened that COVID is continuing to affect all of our small businesses to the extent that it has, and that over the past year even with being able to bring our in-person shows back to the communities that we know and love, that we are still having to make a tough decision like this one. While we know there are still some vendors who would love to be there tomorrow, and still some of you who would love to come shop with them, we feel that this is the best decision for everyone, given the circumstances.
We are heartbroken about this but look forward to seeing you at our 2 remaining shows of the summer season, Derby Days next month, and the UCU Summer Show in August.
If you were planning on coming to shop tomorrow, we’d love it if you could instead take the time to peruse the vendor gallery online, and support them.

I just wanted to thank everyone involved for putting together this great event. I had an amazing time and sold out of many items. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but now wish I would have signed up for all of your events 😊 Thank you again for all your efforts and for choosing me to participate. It’s clear that the work you all do, supports all of us artists. For that I am extremely grateful.
I love the venue as it’s right on the water and already a super popular place for people in the greater tacoma area to go and shop/eat/walk. I am from this area so I think it makes great sense as a venue.
The location was excellent. I so appreciate that you hosted a show in the Tacoma area!
The enthusiasm of the shoppers at this event was outstanding!
[My favorite part was] Um. EVERYTHING!!! I love how curated the event was. Walking thru I could also tell how purposeful you were about placement and I really REALLY appreciated that.
This was seriously the most well planned, well communicated, well thought out and executed show I’ve been been to. I know it’s not your goal to make others look bad but DANG. Other markets need to take a lesson from you!! I was elated and so excited all dang day. Down to the “remove the duct tape off the floor”. You ladies absolutely killed it and are my hero’s!!! OH. One thing. Packing up in the end-if there were volunteers that could help watch our stuff while we got our cars, that would behave been amazing. The square was packed full of people and I had to pray and then run to my car leaving it all out in the open. I def would have offered to pay someone just to have the peace of mind and know I had someone there watching my stuff while I did that. Just a thought.
Beautiful setting, well organized, good audience, great sales!
The good organization, free parking, easy load in/out, and the customers were SO nice. One of the nicest crowds I’ve seen.
Everything went very smoothly. It’s exciting that this show was so well attended on its very first year! Great work!
Thanks for hosting this new show! It was a perfect location and opportunity to grow my customer base out of Seattle and NW Washington. I loved the open space, view and access to bathrooms, food and laid back nature.
