tacoma spring fest
Saturday & Sunday, August 7th & 8th
11am – 6pm
We are so excited to announce that Tacoma Spring Fest will be returning in 2021! Just to be extra safe with the pace of vaccine rollouts we are pushing this show from our usual June date to the beginning of August…which technically makes this Tacoma Summer Fest this year!
2020 was a hard year for so many small businesses and we want to help them make up for lost time/revenue. Often many makers rely on shows to help carry them through the year and with all the cancellations last year, many small businesses suffered a tremendous loss. We all understand why we did what we had to do, but we are THRILLED to be back and giving businesses these opportunities once again!
As we navigate these months leading up to the show, our team will be following the guidelines from the state and the CDC. Our greatest hope is that this can be a celebration with food trucks, 75+ amazing handmade makers, games and fun for the entire family! We can’t wait to see you all again!

The location was excellent. I so appreciate that you hosted a show in the Tacoma area!
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.
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.
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.
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.
The good organization, free parking, easy load in/out, and the customers were SO nice. One of the nicest crowds I’ve seen.
Beautiful setting, well organized, good audience, great sales!
[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.
The enthusiasm of the shoppers at this event was outstanding!
Everything went very smoothly. It’s exciting that this show was so well attended on its very first year! Great work!
