July 13, 2014 11 am to 7 pm | 6th Avenue Business District’s Annual Art on the Ave Festival stands out among the many festivals in Tacoma because it’s the chosen playground of the fresh vibrant art and music scene of Tacoma. Truly an all inclusive event, Art on the Ave festival is attended every year by multiple generations of music and art lovers. Art on the Ave is the largest free art festival in Tacoma. The vision of the Art on the Ave Festival is to draw together the neighborhood and the business district, to see its businesses thrive and to promote the district throughout the entire northwest region.   The theme this year is “Operation Epic!”

During the festival you can enjoy free wifi thanks to our sponsor 2Bridges. You can also navigate the festival and plan your day using a smart phone app called “Guidebook.” Just go to your app store, download the free app and search for “Art on the Ave.”
