The City of Tacoma's Office of Arts & Cultural Vitality is seeking submissions of virtual and in-person arts and culture events happening during Tacoma Arts Month this October. We are looking for a variety of events spanning all categories of art and culture including but not limited to music, visual art, literary art, dance, theater, and film.
If you will be hosting an exhibition, performance, class, workshop, reception, lecture, tour, artists’ market, celebration, meeting, presentation, or any other programming, let us know. We will list your arts event in our interactive and searchable online calendar at tacomaartsmonth.org/eventshttps://urldefense.com/v3/__http:/www.tacomaartsmonth.org/events__;!!CRCbkf1f!RxATXIj_zlTqKdiV4H-1kFWPnHKhluidca6zKlrEFyGXwedRmAjirJUY3CXbb8P5zwvIggP0pcBZqqQoKy74mmwwxyWExkhDJg$. There is no cost to you. We will be promoting the many events going on throughout the month through print and digital advertisements and articles, e-newsletters, television ads, radio ads, and through a variety of social media outlets.
Tacoma Arts Month would not be possible without the participation of local businesses, organizations, and community members. We encourage you to participate by hosting your own arts event.
Event submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and will be added to the online calendar as they are received.
To Qualify: Your arts event must be located within the City of Tacoma limits, open to the public, and occur during the month of October.
To Submit Your Event:
Submit your event using the ‘Add Event’ button located directly above the events calendar at tacomaartsmonth.org/eventshttps://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/tacomaartsmonth.org/events__;!!CRCbkf1f!RxATXIj_zlTqKdiV4H-1kFWPnHKhluidca6zKlrEFyGXwedRmAjirJUY3CXbb8P5zwvIggP0pcBZqqQoKy74mmwwxyV37jsJlw$.
If you need assistance, please follow these step-by-step directionshttps://cms.cityoftacoma.org/CEDD/TacomaCulture/arts/TA_TAMonth_AddingEventsToCalendar.pdf.
Note: if your organization is funded by Tacoma Creates and you have already entered your event on the Tacoma Creates event calendar, you do not need to enter it in on the Tacoma Arts Month event calendar. Events on the Tacoma Creates event calendar automatically feed in to the Tacoma Arts Month calendar.
