'T-Town: Play, Explore, Learn' City Services Expo

The T-Town City Services Expo is Back

A Tacoma Dome “Dome of our Own” turns 40 in April 2023 and in celebration, Tacoma Venues & Events invites the community to join us on April 28 and 29, 2023. 


Free, Family-Friendly Community Event at the Dome

The 'T-Town: Play, Explore, Learn' City Services Expo is a free, family-friendly community event at the Tacoma Dome. The event is a unique, hands-on experience for the community to engage with City Departments as well as learn about career and trades opportunities.

Departments from the City of Tacoma and Tacoma Public Utilities will provide
interactive experiences, including an opportunity to Touch A Truck with vehicles from Environmental Services, Tacoma Police Department, Tacoma Fire Department, Public Works, Tacoma Water, Rail and Power, and many more. Activities also include backstage tours, live demonstrations, job opportunities, and more. Tacoma Rainiers’ mascot Rhubarb the Reindeer will make a special appearance on Saturday at 11 AM.


Fan favorite concession food and beverage, along with entertainment, will be provided for free as a part of the Dome’s 40th anniversary celebration. On Saturday, the entertainment stage will feature music from throughout the Dome’s history with bands Radio 80Night Fever, and Sin City. Backstage tours will take guests through the history of the Dome, one decade at a time. Guests will also receive a free clear bag courtesy of Pepsi, and other giveaways.


Free parking will be available both days at the Tacoma Dome.


Tacoma Public Schools (TPS), in partnership with Korsmo Construction, enhance 2023’s T-Town with the Tacoma Public Schools and Korsmo Construction Trades & Hiring Fair. Up to 2,000 students from TPS will visit the Trades & Hiring Fair. With over 100 booths, there is something for everyone in the family - career exploration for high school students, summer job opportunities with higher paying careers in the trades for 16–18-year-olds, and job opportunities for adults considering a new career. The Trades & Hiring Fair will have representation from these industries: maritime, transportation, logistics, and construction, to name a few. Trades-related companies, local educational and apprentice-related exhibitors will be present.
