Join us for a day of hands-on fun and learning
Are you interested in cake decorating, fiber arts, bike repair or making your own sauerkraut?
Do you like to build or fix things?
Are you the creative type?
Come join us at DIYfest, where we celebrate the do-it-yourself culture in Pierce County.
Experts and aficionados will showcase their skills through hands-on activities. Learn fun and useful things on a variety of topics from crafting and sustainable living to cooking and home renovation. The event also features local authors, kitchen demonstrations and food trucks for hungry do-it-yourselfers.
