Ghosts in the Balfour Dock Building

March 12, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The Foss Waterway Seaport, in partnership with Tacoma’s School of the Arts, invites you to an evening of ghostly tales…at night, in the dark! Just a little bit spooky…and a whole lot of fun!

Back by popular demand for the second year, come experience an innovative storytelling experience entitled, “Ghosts In the Balfour Dock Building!”

Ticket holders will be taken back in time! Experience our vast historic warehouse (in the dark…it gets really dark at night), and cold (we have no heat). See the incredible expanse of 116-year old trusses (they are amazing), hear the sounds of the working waterfront (can you identify that sound)…while ghostly spirits from the past appear to tell their stories. Hear firsthand what Tacoma was like before our historic warehouse was built, enjoy tales from those who worked in the warehouse and experience a night full of history.

Foss Waterway Seaport
705 Dock Street Tacoma, WA 98402
Free parking in our front parking lot, the west side of our building and on the street. Paid parking in the lot north of our building.

Friday, March 11
Saturday, March 12
8:00 PM (doors open at 7:45 PM)

Foss Waterway Seaport Member – Free
Individual – $5.00
Family (up to 2 adults and 2 children) – $16 (Children must be 10 years of age or older)
Includes a hot drink, cookies and chocolates after the performance

We have no heat in the building. Wear layers, heavy coat, hat, gloves, long underwear and your smart wool socks. (The warehouse at night is an experience like no other…one that very few people have experienced since the 1900s! This will be the last year to experience this historic atmosphere…heat is finally being installed in the building!)
Note, the audience will be standing during the performance, along with walking short distances around the warehouse to hear each lively tale.
