Join us for SummerFEST and International Festival; a festive day of activities for the whole family. SummerFEST themes are: Hands-on Art, Multi-sporting events, an International Festival and car show. The hands-on art and art demonstrations feature activities from the Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum and Children’s Museum of Tacoma. Artists will conduct mini-workshops and demonstrations from print making to photography and glass blowing. The International Festival takes place all day with live performances, music, inter-active art and fabulous food. Sporting activities are designed for both adults and youth and include a sprint triathlon, soccer tournaments, orienteering races, obstacle courses in addition to our trail runs! There are two stages with live entertainment and food trucks to keep your energy flowing throughout this memorable day.
For our trail runs, we offer 1 mile kids, 5K, and 10K options. There will be plenty of aid stations and the courses are well marked with signs at intersections. The courses start and finish at the main Ft. Steilacoom Shelter.
Ft. Steilacoom Park, located just south of Tacoma, Washington is an urban park in the Pacific Northwest with hundreds of trails crisscrossing through open fields, lakes, forests and grasslands. The courses are fast with not a lot of climb, and feature a great variety of trails, terrain, and vegetation.
For you history buffs out there, Ft. Steilacoom was constructed in 1849 and played a significant role in the settling of Washington Territory. The Fort is still there today and open for tours, (here's some information). This park features a state-of-the-art playground, an amazing off-leash dog park, many picnic shelters, and a small lake with a paved walking path encircling its shoreline. Great place to invite the whole family if you're so inclined!
This event is sanctioned by USA Track & Field.
