The 9th Annual Destiny Dinner

Saturday, September 26th

at the Foss Waterway Seaport

Each year Tacoma Historical Society partners with our community to present a unique aspect of Tacoma’s varied history. This year’s theme is ‘Working Tacoma.’ We would be honored to have you join us as we celebrate our city’s unique labor history and the heroic men and women who built the City of Destiny. Proceeds from the event will continue to support Tacoma Historical Society’s efforts to preserve, promote, and present our local history.
