Tacoma 6th Ave Fair

The Sixth Avenue Business District is located between State and Alder along Sixth Avenue. Electric truly defines the district with its coffee shops, bridal shops, event venues, thrift and record stores, salons, tattoo parlors, fast food and award winning restaurants. Sixth Avenue is a hot spot at night with quality musical entertainment, local clubs and a wide array of dining choices. The Ave is an area you don’t want to miss day or night.

Sixth Avenue is home to some of Tacoma’s iconic businesses, from designer ice cream to fairies and Tarot, dinner-plate-size donuts to Tacoma’s first craft brewery. A mix of history and attitude create this unique and inviting neighborhood that you’re sure to remember. Whether you’re a gamer or a gourmand, Sixth Avenue has something for you. Come visit during one of our many festivals and stay for all that we have to offer.




6th Avenue district meetings are held at 9:30 am on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
