Tacoma's historic Stadium District

Located north of downtown, the Stadium Historic Business District is located in the heart of the city’s fascinating North End neighborhood. Stadium District is home to the incredible architecture of Stadium High School – made famous by the late 90’s hit movie 10 Things I Hate About You – and the beauty of both Wright Park and the Seymour Conservatory. Ranko’s Pharmacy, the Harvester, Ball Automotive and Stadium Thriftway are long time Stadium district businesses that have been serving their neighbors and Tacoma residents with quality service for many years.

Just a short drive from the bustling streets of downtown Tacoma, the Stadium District offers all the products and services modern life requires in a picturesque neighborhood setting. Downtown and Stadium residents can find the convenience of a full-service grocery store, drug store, dry cleaners, bank, tailor, hair salons, coffee shops and eateries all within the confines of our quaint business district. See our complete list of the more than 70 Stadium businesses.

In the Stadium District, you’ll receive friendly service from family-owned businesses and experience a genuine sense of community created by the celebrations our district hosts. Special holiday events include the popular Halloween “Street of Treats” and the weekend-long Dickens Holiday Festival that includes tours of our neighborhood’s historic homes and roving minstrel singers.

So stop by to do your shopping and errands, but while you’re here, enjoy a cup of coffee or a bite to eat and discover for yourself the charm and vitality of our beautiful district!



Stadium district meetings are held quarterly in the afternoon.
