2023 Activities TBD


Previous years’ activities have included:

In addition to connecting with many environmentally-related  vendors, Expo visitors will enjoy fun family-friendly activities!

Kids Corner: Our friends at the Tacoma Nature Center will help our littlest Expo attendees grow their green thumbs with a seed planting activity using reused and recycled materials.

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 will be on-hand to guide guests through this interactive experience.

Mending Station: Bring your clothing and textiles in need of minor repairs, and a skilled team of “fixers” will be available to get your garments looking good as new!

Live Music and Performance: Local and regional artists and musicians will showcase environmentally-inspired art.

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