Tacoma Freedom Fair Music Schedule

Tacoma Freedom Fair Music

Our Sponsors

The musical performances at the Tacoma Freedom Fair are a big part of the celebration. This is Tacoma's premier musical event of the summer, and you won't want to miss a single performance! We always try to feature a wide variety of musical styles and many talented performers so you'll be sure to discover a band or artist you like.

We will have performances of jazz, rock, country, pop, Christian music and Blues, just to cover the main categories. Freedom Fair is Tacoma's summer outdoor music festival -- where else in Tacoma can you see so many bands on so many stages, outdoors and in the sun? There will be lots of local and up-and-coming musicians performing for crowds and getting valuable exposure. It's a good chance for you to discover a new artist before they are playing sold out venues. You'll also see many seasoned bands and performers who will dazzle you with their showmanship and musicianship.
