Welcome to
Edison Square

community events • weddings • celebrations

Edison Square is a historic building located on South Tacoma Way. Built in 1919, Edison Square was originally the Realart Theater - one of Tacoma’s first movie theaters. At that time, the neighborhood was known as “Edison” before it was renamed South Tacoma in the 1920’s. Over 100 years later, the Realart Theater has been restored to its former glory, and Edison Square is born!

Today, Edison Square is a beautiful venue and community hub in South Tacoma. It’s the perfect space for your wedding, reception, corporate event, public market, party, or celebration. It’s a place where memories are made, the community comes together, and people are inspired to think differently.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"Edison Square is a gorgeous space. I love old buildings, and there was a lot of thought put into all the beautiful details with this building’s restoration. The decor fits the classic charm of the place, while still being modern. The kitchen has everything that a caterer needs, and I look forward to continuing to use it. But more than anything, what makes Edison an awesome event space is the people. Stephanie, Rondi, and Alan are great to work with, and that has made all the difference to me. I am so excited for the new event space at Edison!"
