Our Venue



Point Defiance Pagoda


Inspired by Japanese architecture when it was built in 1914, the Pagoda is the focal point of Point Defiance Park's Japanese Garden.

Surrounded by a Japanese garden featuring pools, a waterfall, a footbridge, sakura cherry trees, and an authentic Shinto shrine and Tori Gate presented by Tacoma’s Sister City in Kitakyushu Japan, the Pagoda serves as a venue for garden shows, classes and community celebrations.

Through a special partnership with Tacoma's Sister City, Kitakyushu, the garden surrounding the Pagoda will receive an updated design plan reflective of Japanese landscaping traditions and steeped in cultural heritage. The planning and fundraising for this project began in 2012. Learn more about the Japanese Garden.

This rare historic site is also available for rental as a scenic setting for weddings, family gatherings and corporate events.



Our Caterer


About Jonz

Our first principle as a company has always been an uncompromising drive to give our customers food that exceeds all of their expectations. Our food is never bland, and never from the “rubber chicken circuit.” From the Executive Chef to the dish washer, flavor comes first with Jònz.

Jònz catering was founded in response to what we seemed to experience at every wedding or catered corporate event we attended:

  • Bored-looking servers in the same white shirt/black tie uniform wishing they were somewhere else.
  • Food that looked like a doorstop but didn’t taste as good.
  • Décor that was out of date when most of the guests were born.

We believed it was time for a fresh approach to making memorable events. This approach takes into account current trends in fine dining and event planning, and evolves to reflect the demands of an increasingly knowledgeable general public.
