Our Venue:

Tin Can Alley

PJ Hummel and Company’s World Headquarters is a repurposed century-old factory located in the transportation hub of Tacoma known as the Dome District. The venue, Tin Can Alley, is a facility for human connectivity as well as celebration of art, culture, tourism and business. Constructed in 1919 as a factory to house Tacoma Can Company, the unique building  features vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and a delightful combination of contemporary and rustic accents laced throughout. Private and secluded yet in the middle of it all with easy freeway access.


Major construction is happening and a detour is in place.  Please give yourself extra time to navigate. Free parking is located around the area.   Look for the RED Tin Can Alley Wayfinding Balloon!
