Four Days of Early Christmas
The Tacoma Holiday Food & Gift Festival is an annual celebration in Tacoma that is visited by thousands from all around the county. Under the sprawling Tacoma Dome, more than 500 booths showcase a myriad of goods and foods plus entertainment. Running for four days, from the 20th to the 24th of October, and just before Halloween, people around find reasons to come and spend days for shopping, dining, and enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of Washington commerce.
Food products on sale like honey, cakes and pastries, jams, sauces, snacks, coffee, spices, and more are represented. Crafts for the home and office, apparel for grownups, children and pets, beauty products and jewelry, kitchen and bathroom wares, wall decor, and thousands of gift items for Christmas are in every nook and corner. Find cooking demonstrations and free tastings from some of the famous chefs of restaurants and culinary schools. And then, while shopping and dining, enjoy special musical and theatrical performances in the main Tacoma Dome arena stage.
You definitely must put this event in your itinerary. And if you’re from out-of-town, bring the family along and stay near by.
