Urban Craft Uprising Spring Fest at Point Ruston
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
We are thrilled to be adding another new event to our show roster this year! We are heading down to Tacoma! With Seattle growing at a rate that is honestly hard to wrap our heads around, we see a lot of these outlying areas really growing as well. We are sad that many Seattleites are getting priced out of Seattle proper, but the upside is that we now have eager audiences both to the north and the south that we are happy to serve.
We branched out to the north end by debuting the Edmonds Spring Fest last year, and that exceeded our expectations so well that we decided to throw some love to the south end as well! Tacoma right now feels like what Seattle did in the ’90s. It’s an exciting area and we are so thrilled to be hosting our first Tacoma Spring Fest in the beautiful area of Point Ruston. This new public mixed-use space has an amazing view of Mt. Rainier, and has many sweeping views of the water and the ridge lines, a public park right down the steps from where our vendors will be, and a long biking/walking trail spanning the waterfront. Not to mention, it’s right by a bustling movie theater, numerous bars and restaurants, and apartment buildings.
We hope that this event will bring more awareness to the south-enders about UCU and what we do. We’ll also have food trucks, and with the neighboring restaurants’ outdoor patios essentially serving as built-in beer gardens, we expect shoppers you’ll want to stay and make a day of it!
