Getting Here

Let us guide your way! Please follow our recommended routes. For real-time traffic, we suggest using Waze.

Limited parking in Dome lots is $15. RV and Bus parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and is charged at $15/spot utilized. Please note: overnight parking is NOT allowed.

Security & Entry

Doors open at 10am daily. Guests may utilize the Exhibition Hall entry doors.

Security measures are in place for all Tacoma Dome events, including metal detectors, bag size restrictions (12"x6"x12"), and bag searches. Backpacks are not allowed. Weapons of any kind, including pocket knives, are not allowed. If you see something, say something™. Visit our Security page for more details. Please note: the Tacoma Dome clear bag policy is not in place for Holiday Food & Gift Festival. However, guests are encouraged to only bring essential items to expedite entry and reduce touchpoints.

Cashless Concessions

The Tacoma Dome is a cashless facility, including all concession sales. Google Pay and Apple Pay are also available at concession points of sale. There are cash-to-card kiosks (reverse ATM’s) where guests can exchange their cash for a Tacoma Dome VISA card. Card balances remain usable anywhere after the event. Going cashless improves the transaction process, reduces wait times, and limits guest to staff contact. Cashless parking payment options are also available. Please visit our Cashless FAQs for more information. Please note: Vendors, like those at Holiday Food & Gift Festival, are encouraged to only accept credit cards or mobile payments for their safety, but individual vendors may still accept cash, if preferred.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Santa returns to the Tacoma Holiday Food & Gift Festival. Visit their website for Santa's schedule.

Cooking for the Holidays

Cooking for the Holidays returns with food demonstrations from local chefs and food experts. Visit the show Cooking Program page for the schedule and to learn more about participating chefs.

Food & Beverage

Take a break and grab a bite to eat! This year's food offerings include some returning favorites and additional grab and go options. Bean Water Espresso is located near the center of the arena and Original House of Donuts food truck is located near the food court.
