With ongoing local music, theater, arts, and community events, our visitors have plenty of entertainment to choose.

Federal Way broke ground for its new Performing Arts and Event Center (PAEC) in October 2015. Opening in summer of 2017, this 44,000 square foot building will be a hub for performances and events in the heart of South Puget Sound.
Located at the corner of S. 316th Street and Pete von Reichbauer Way S., this facility will be the ideal event venue for full-service trade shows, corporate trainings, conventions, event meetings, and banquets. The PAEC will also have a 716-seat, two tiered theatre to accommodate musical, theatrical, dance, and spoken word performances from across the region and around the world. A close 20 minutes from SeaTac airport, the new PAEC will bring further cultural, educational, and economic opportunities to Federal Way.
