MayFest in the Tacoma area is a time to celebrate the coming of spring. During this festival the spring gardens are in full bloom.

This festival is held on a ten acre estate and will provide guests with an appreciation of the gardening cycle. MayFest is all about the arts and each display represents the various types of art in the area, but also features the artworks of local artisans. Those responsible for promoting the event may have used images of their works in a run of poster printing to get the word out about the event.
The mission of the Lakewood Arts Commission is to provide recommendations that will enrich the community by promoting its cultural vitality using the arts. The display at MayFest is made up of local artists and will be on display in the upper level of Wagner House. This is the 5th annual event and each year new exhibits and activities are added by the various cultural groups.
