Banquets & Private Events

For many years the members of the Tacoma Yacht Club, along with their families and friends, have been coming here to celebrate their most important events. Whether it be a wedding, private party or reunions, hosting a private event with the Club is one of the many benefits of membership at Tacoma Yacht Club. 

The Club boasts a modern and spacious clubhouse. Our Point Defiance location adds to the ambiance of the club. We take great pride in providing the finest cuisine and service, along with our breathtaking views of the Olympic mountain range, Mount Rainier and Commencement Bay, and we promise to do everything possible to make your time here worry-free and enjoyable.

Private Event Information

Membership at the Tacoma Yacht Club or sponsorship from a current member is required to host a private event.

Sponsored Events

A Member may sponsor extended family, friends or organizations that are not club members and these persons or entities may have banquets at the Tacoma Yacht Club in accordance with the Club Banquet Policy.  A member, acting as a sponsor, may not pass their membership privileges to the sponsored person or entity.  Sponsoring members must be in attendance during the entire function and are responsible for the actions of all guests attending.  The sponsoring member is responsible for all charges and will be billed directly through their club account.  All accounts are due and payable within 1 week after the function.  (The term entity used here includes but is not limited to, organizations, corporations, businesses and clubs, whether social, civic or commercial.)  The banquet facilities are not to be used for commercial enterprise, and certain types of functions may be restricted.

Member Events

A member event is defined for our purpose as a personal event (i.e. wedding reception, family re-union, memorial, birthday party etc.) hosted by the actual member, spouse or minor children. As a benefit to club membership member personal events are subject to only 50% of the required room rental fees. Member usage other than those types of events listed above does not qualify for the above discount. 

Reciprocal Events

Reciprocal Members may make use of the Tacoma Yacht Club facilities for banquets and do not require a TYC sponsor. Proof of reciprocity and a credit card account on file with the office is required.
