Long Description:
The Tacoma Dome is one of the largest wood domed structures in the world. It is owned and operated by the City of Tacoma’s Public Assembly Facilities Department. Ground breaking for the facility took place on July 1, 1981. The building was constructed in less than two years and officially opened on April 21, 1983. The Tacoma Dome hosted its first major concert on August 11, 1983 with David Bowie.

The Tacoma Dome’s roof was built with 1.6 million board feet and weighs 1,444,000 pounds. 24,541,382 cubic feet of concrete was used in the construction of the Tacoma Dome. This is enough to build a sidewalk 70 miles long. The Tacoma Dome is 530 feet in diameter and 152 feet tall.
