Proctor Arts Fest

Proctor Arts Fest is a community-based street fair on North 26th & Proctor Streets in Tacoma, WA.  It’s organized by the Proctor Business District Association and has been happening for the last 18 years. The goal of Proctor Arts Fest is to provide a free, accessible and celebratory experience of the arts for the public.

This event attracts approximately 10,000 people from Tacoma and Pierce County and 160 art and crafts vendors every year. In addition to the vendors, it features a Juried art show of about 85 art pieces by 60 artists, three stages of music and entertainment  (this includes one stage that is designated “The Family Stage” that is organized by personnel of the Tacoma Public Library), a kids area with participation by the Metropolitan Park District, a Famers’ Market, a dog fashion show and parade, a merchants sidewalk sale.

Come & enjoy live music and local entertainment, purchase original artwork or a craft piece from its maker, browse through the juried art show and let the children create their own original “art”. A great way to get to know your neighbors and practice building your community.
