With nearby Mt. Rainier providing a stunning backdrop, the wooden top of Tacoma Dome perfectly complements its natural setting. The Dome is Washington State’s largest arena and one of the world’s largest arenas with a wooden dome. The venue doesn’t have a typical seating setup, providing the flexibility needed for the arena to host an array of sporting and entertainment events. This also allows guests to enjoy an up-close experience with excellent views and acoustics for concerts and special events.
Tacoma Dome opened in 1983 with a concert by David Bowie as part of his Serious Moonlight Tour. Since then, it’s hosted a number of sporting events, concerts, trade shows, crusades, festivals and expos. Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Chris Botti and Blake Shelton are among the headliners who have graced its stage.
Tacoma Dome is about 30 miles from the city of Seattle. Visitors from Seattle can take the commuter train or an express bus to the arena. There are dozens of hotels and restaurants in downtown Tacoma, which is less than a mile from the Dome. The Tacoma Dome parking lots have limited availability, but there are privately owned garages and lots downtown that offer easy alternatives to parking onsite. From these lots, guests can catch the Tacoma link light rail to the arena.
