Visit us at our Mini Wedding Expo, Thursday April 16th, from 5:00 to 7:30pm. See our website for info and to RSVP!

Events on 6th is the perfect venue for you!

Enjoy getting married in our beautiful sanctuary and then celebrating in our fun reception hall. Your guests don't have to drive anywhere; they can mingle and walk through the lounge and garden courtyard to get to the party. We also offer a number of other amenities singular to our venue, all designed for your comfort, photos, and peace of mind.

Events on 6th is located in what was previously the Sixth Avenue Baptist Church, a striking Gothic Revival structure built in 1924, in the heart of the Sixth Avenue Business District. The sanctuary features stained glass windows on the North and West facades, a majestic vaulted ceiling, the church's original pipe organ, and seating for 250.

Our Wedding Package includes generous time constraints and all of the following:

* Historic sanctuary with lower level and balcony seating. It has an amazing big feel because of the high ceilings, but it is also very intimate because of the size of the space. Feel like royalty in this gorgeous place!

* Romantic bridal suite with vanity and restroom - it is so lovely for pictures!

* Relaxing den for groom and his attendants - a place for the guys.

* Mid-century style lounge with bar/kitchenette and fireplace. Your guests will enjoy having other places to mingle.

* Outdoor Garden Courtyard, directly accessible from the lounge and reception hall. So fun to have an outdoor space in an indoor venue!

* Reception Hall with exposed-beam ceiling, tables and chairs included

* Buffet/serving room adjoining reception hall

* Parking lot in rear of building



With so many beautiful areas in such a unique layout included in your package, you've really got to see it for yourself.

My husband and I had several requirements when selecting a wedding venue: 1) An all in one location for both the ceremony and reception, 2) An indoor location to avoid potential weather issues, 3) A place with history and character, and 4) A venue within our budget. Events on 6th truly delivered on all of these areas, and we feel truly blessed to have found such a fantastic space. The history of the building adds an incredible sense of charm and character, and honors the history of Tacoma and the 6th Ave District in particular. The space is simply perfect for weddings with fewer than 160 guests, and somehow manages to feel both intimate and spacious at the same time. We were extremely grateful for the prompt responses from the venue throughout the planning process when questions or last-minute concerns arose. Both the reception and ceremony spaces (plus lovely interior courtyard) are truly beautiful on their own, and required very little decorative additions to make them feel like our own personal wedding. The generous vendor list, and extended rehearsal time (2 hours vs. the common 1 hour) only capped off our positive feelings about Events on 6th. We are simply grateful that we found such a beautiful and perfect location to say our "I do's", and would wholeheartedly recommend the venue to anyone planning a wedding. Thank you, Events on 6th, for making our wedding dreams a reality.

Beautiful location wrapped in a unique venue that was recently renovated and restored to its historic beauty. My guests were very impressed with our venue and I couldn't have been happier with the service, location and the value. This is not your average cookie-cutter wedding venue, there is so much detailing in the chapel and especially loved the string lights in the reception area. My wedding couldn't have been more beautiful.

The venue was amazing. Absolutely beautiful! Beth was amazing to work with and extremely helpful! Despite the temperature being in the 90's, everyone had a great time. It was very convenient for our guests to park in the rented parking lot next door. We could not have asked for a better venue or a better venue coordinator! Thank you Beth!

I had the great pleasure of holding my wedding ceremony and reception at Events on 6th this past summer. What a wonderful place it was! I had so many people tell me how beautiful/cool/unique the venue was. It looked fabulous in pictures and the reception area allowed for plenty of different zones- the dance floor, the buffet room, the lounge for people who wanted to talk without the noise of a band or d.j., and the hallway where I set up a photo booth. There was great flow through the different areas during the reception, so the space never felt crowded despite having 150+ people.

While the venue itself provides tons of benefits and beauty, what really made Events on 6th so wonderful was the staff. I worked mostly with Beth. She is calm, knowledgeable, easy-going and doesn't have that "salesperson" personality. She helped me stay calm and focused during the rehearsal and day of the wedding. She took care of small details that I never thought to delegate to someone. She felt like a good friend rather than a venue coordinator.

The only down side would be that it was very hot (80 degrees) the day of my wedding and the venue has no air conditioning. The sanctuary would have been pretty uncomfortable if I had a ceremony longer than 30 minutes. For most of the year, this wouldn't be a problem though. Beth and Kim brought huge fans into the reception hall, which helped a lot (as did opening the courtyard doors). Just something to think about if you have a summer wedding planned!

Parking could seem like a problem as there are few spots owned by Events on 6th, but we called the paid parking lot next to the venue and rented it out for our guests. It was very inexpensive.

Events on 6th was the perfect venue for our wedding! The staff was so helpful, both before the wedding, and the day of the wedding. Our questions were answered very quickly, and we were given a lot of helpful resources for planning, recommendations on vendors, and all the details to make sure the whole event ran smooth. The day of the wedding, the staff was extra helpful ensuring everything was set up just as we wanted.

I loved being able to have the ceremony and the reception in the same location. Both the sanctuary and the reception area worked great. We had a large photo booth and cocktail tables in the lounge, which worked well with the courtyard for a lot of room for guests to spread out and have fun. The catering area and kitchen with serving window worked great for the bar. I loved that they had their own tables and nice chairs. The groom's den and bridal suite were perfect for hanging out and getting ready, and the bridal suite was a beautiful setting for "getting ready" pictures. It was a little warm in the bridal suite in the summer, but I hear they have installed air conditioner in there now to make it more comfortable.

I was initially worried about the parking with the residential area surrounding Events on 6th, and I rented the parking lot next door which was very inexpensive (~$40 for around 35 spots), but there was plenty of good parking in the residential area for about 150 guests.

I could not have imagined a better venue for our wedding! I hope to have other events there, too. It's a great place for a party!

Having our wedding at Events on 6th! was the best decision (other than saying yes to my husband) that we made during the whole getting married process. I first looked at the website before we were engaged, and fell in love. Because it was out of my very small budget, I moved on in looking for other venues. I kept going back to the Events on 6th website and just couldn't help feeling that it would be the perfect place. After searching long and hard and not finding anyone else that came close to the same feeling I got from Events on 6th!, my parents agreed it was the one place that was the right fit and agreed to booking them for me! We were NOT disappointed. Not only was the whole wedding day so great, but our pictures are GORGEOUS and Laura and Beth made it a very easy process and went above and beyond in customer service to make sure we were happy. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who loves the architecture, the vintage feel, or just wants a CLASSY place to tie the knot!

Without a doubt I recommend this venue for any bride searching for a romantic and flexible space. Laura is extremely easy and fun to work with. My favorite part was a well-manicured courtyard space that connects the 1960s mod lounge to the reception space.
