    This information has been provided by the Tacoma Dome:

    It is recommended attendees arrive early to allow extra time to enter the facility due to security and entry policies. Doors to most graduations are scheduled to open one hour prior to the scheduled graduation time.  

    The Tacoma Dome has installed metal detectors at the entry doors and will search all bags.  Bags, including handbags and purses, may be no larger than 13” x 15”. Backpacks of all sizes are prohibited.   If you can avoid bringing a bag it will speed up your entry into the facility. This applies to both attendees AND graduates. 

    Please check the Tacoma Dome’s website for more information about security measures:

    There will be an event happening in the downtown Tacoma waterfront area on June 17 that may impact traffic approaching the Tacoma Dome. For more information about how to minimize delays, please visit the Tacoma Dome’s website:

    Also, the Tacoma Dome is charging $15, cash only, to park in the Tacoma Dome parking lots. For alternate parking options and directions, please check the Tacoma Dome’s website:
