We are all connected in wondrous and mysterious ways, and our community has the ability to send a powerfully positive message to communities around the world this Holiday Season.
Our Destiny is not so removed from that of others, and in very real ways our futures are intertwined with friends the Sound and around the world.
Give Warmth & Love & Hope this Year:
Consider where you are able
& contribute where you care Here
The Holiday Season is upon us, and with warmth in our hearts we start the Season with a host of events bringing family and communities together in celebration of diverse, glorious life. Join us and others around the city and in our neighborhoods for much excitement and fun.
Lovers of the bean know well: Our city has a wide range of quality local and regionally-roasted coffee from all over the Sound, right here in Tacoma.
Discover why you should drink better than big bean bean: Experience better flavor, benefit local culture and contribute to greater life in the Sound.
Great style doesn't have to cost you much: Retro and Northwest fashion at stores like Retrospect and Manedlin's on 6th Ave, or Urban Xchange downtown are excellent places to find your special holiday styles.
We read a lot - it's a Northwest thing. Consider discovering a reading community fit for kings. .
What have we missed?
Suggest an experience - Hidden neighborhood gems are all over town; share, and we will include what we missed.
A rich historical heritage of varied and original voices is the inheritance of our people. We call it the 'South Sound' for a reason. Click pic for music, and listen to sounds from our town while you search.
The Spirit of Destiny is live.
Music in the 6th Degree Brings Home the Bacon - Listen to Local Bands, let them know you support bettering life in the Sound and help get the word around: More coming soon . .
From Our Neighborhoods
Artists 4 Life in the Sound sponsored ~40 local businesses in our city in 15,000 maps that were distributed city-wide. We charged them nothing and encouraged others by word of mouth to patronize these businesses because they well represent the character and quality of our local community economy. This Season we continue the tradition online - scroll through categories above & support our city.
