about our community

Since old and new Tacoma joined forces in 1884, this city has been built on a culture of collaboration. The city continues that today by welcoming everyone to be a part of the story. Our welcoming nature is deeply rooted in the story of this place, since Downtown Tacoma is on the traditional land of the Puyallup people, who’s name means “generous and welcoming to all”. The uniqueness and diversity of this community is at the heart of who we are downtown.
