How we started

Pacific Avenue Business District. The story - a couple of ladies got together and started talking about ideas on how to clean and protect their neighborhood. They called around and even went door to door to the local businesses from 46th to 56th Streets and started talking about their ideas and today they have formed a committee to get things rolling. As you can tell , we are all very excited. Believe it or not we have already got things happening in just our first few weeks, thanks to the help of our city council members at the time Rick Talbot and Connie Ladenburg and Safe Streets coordinator - Darren Pen and excited local residents.


Where we are today


We were approved as the 15th business district of the City of Tacoma in 2009. We had to do more than the rest thus resulting in an ordnance requirement to the establishment of our district. This would be the norm for any future district formation

Street Fair


We have just completed our 6th year with street fair. It has grown over the years from being on Saturday to now Sunday. This year appears to have been our best year with a large car show and sponsorship from "Sterling Bank" and "Dr. Song DDS". We also have had support from the South End Neighborhood Council. Contact for the 2014 event Street Fair

Our website


We will list your business, your location and how to contact you. We wish to provide all that visit this site all the diversity that we can provide. More than many in Tacoma
