Celebrate Adaptive Reuse at the Holiday Heritage Swing Dance on November 4

 

The community is invited to Tin Can Alley Oop the fifth annual Holiday Heritage Swing Dance presented by the Tacoma Landmarks Preservation Commission and the City of Tacoma’s Historic Preservation Office. The dance will be held at Tin Can Alley Tacoma (2620 E. G St.) on Sunday, November 4, from 6 – 9 PM.

 

The event will feature the Pierce County Community Big Band, a swing dance demonstration by Studio 6 Ballroom, free refreshments and a no-host bar will also be available. This historic preservation fundraiser celebrates the adaptive reuse of historic buildings, which has been the focus of this year’s Historic Preservation Programs.

 

“As always, we are excited to show off a different historic resource every year. Tin Can Alley is an adaptively reused building that housed the Tin Can Factory, which opened in 1919,” said Assistant Historic Preservation Officer Lauren Hoogkamer.

 

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP on the event page, or contact Hoogkamer at landmarks@cityoftacom.org or (253) 591-5254. Suggested donations will support heritage programming and events in 2019.
