2024 Activities Coming Soon!

 In addition to connecting with many environmentally-related  vendors, Expo visitors will enjoy fun family-friendly activities at this year’s Expo. Details about 2024 activities will be announced on this page in early 2024.

 Past Expo activities have included:

Clothing Swap: Sponsored by The Chaya Movement, Expo attendees brought gently used adult clothing to be “swapped”, and to browse other items for free reuse.

Household Electronics Recycling: Regional e-recycling company Uptekk had a truck on-site at the Expo to collect household electronics for safe and responsible recycling and disposal.

Fresh Express Mobile Market: The Tacoma Farmers Market is a year-round, mobile market, offering a full range of fresh and local products to a variety of neighborhoods in and community gathering spaces across Pierce County. 

Kids Corner: The Tacoma Nature Center brings family-friendly environmental activities for our littlest Expo attendees.

Green Building Tour: Attendees took a free, guided tour of the new Milgard Building on the UW Tacoma campus.

Pop-Up Forest: What could our urban and built environment look and feel like with more trees? The City of Tacoma’s Urban Forestry team guided guests through this interactive experience.

Food Trucks: Local vegan food vendors set up in Tollefson Plaza to provide hungry Expo attendees with delicious food sourced from local ingredients and food producers.

…and more!
