Celebrate 2016 Freedom Fair


Freedom Fair 2016 is now a memory, and would not have been a reality without the dedicated efforts of some 100 volunteers, some working year-round on planning, others working in the days before and during the event. Whether this was your first year at Freedom Fair, or your 30th, we hope you found something to delight you along the waters of the beautiful Commencement Bay. 125,000 people enjoyed the music, the air show, the International Marketplace, the Grand Finale Fireworks and the many other activities that are a part of Freedom Fair. Planning goes on year-round to help us ensure that you find all the entertainment and fun you could possibly want at Freedom Fair, and it’s the volunteers, first-responders, talented entertainers and hard-working vendors who make it happen. We hope to see you for many years to come at the Tacoma Freedom Fair! It’s not too late to make a donation to this year’s event. We are a non-profit 501 C (3) organization and will appreciate whatever you can give. Please send all donations to:

Stan Naccarato    1928 - 2016

This year's 4th of July Freedom Fair and Air Show fireworks display will be dedicated to the memory of Stan Naccarato, who passed away on May 25th, 2016 at age 88.

Stan was an integral part of the production of this award winning event for many years, and he especially enjoyed the fireworks display. He had a tireless and consistent presence around Tacoma circles for over sixty years. He will truly be missed!
