Ribbon Cutting & Community Day

The PAEC is the ideal venue for hosting any event: performing arts programs, board meetings, banquets, lectures, seminars, concerts, weddings, and elaborate parties for groups of all sizes.

Our experienced staff is prolific in delivering world-class customer service, and ensures that each event receives the deserved star-quality treatment. The Center is conveniently located a short 20 minutes’ drive from SeaTac Airport and is also adjacent to the Federal Way Transit Center for quick access to public transport and ample parking for patrons.

You are invited to Meet Your New Neighbor.

Saturday, August 19, 2017, 11am - 5pm.

At 11am, Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell will welcome our neighbors, friends and King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer. Deputy Mayor Jeanne Burbidge will address the public at the entrance of the brand new Performing Arts and Event Center about the importance and impact of arts in our community. The Mayor, along with the Federal Way City Council will cut the ceremonial ribbon, and open the doors of the Performing Arts and Event Center to the public for the first time.
