Auburn, one of the oldest towns in the Pacific Nothwest, is centrally located between Seattle and Tacoma and sits as a gateway to Mt. Rainier. Auburn is home to one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest outlet malls, comfortable hotels, exciting entertainment and nightlife, a historic downtown, outstanding performing arts and concert venues, first class thoroughbred horse racing, and top ranked golf courses. Auburn is the perfect place to work, play or spend a lifetime- a place where you can establish a real sense of community.
Auburn’s unique historic downtown reflects a combination of distinctive architecture, historic preservation and on going renovations that not only retain the look and feel of a real downtown, but also provides a lively gathering place for numerous events. Most notably, the annual Veterans Day Parade and Observance. After 50 years it has grown into the largest event of its kind on the west coast.
Indoors and outdoors, there is something for everyone. Auburn has an extensive system of parks, open space and over 23 miles of urban trails for bikers, walkers, runners and skaters. Local parks host numerous free, family friendly festivals that are popular throughout the region like Auburn’s KidsDay, the 4th of July Festival, and Petpalooza, as well as outdoor summer concerts, movies, and cultural performances.
The newly renovated Auburn Performing Arts Center offers an array of world class programming and is home to the Auburn Symphony Orchestra and the Auburn Arts Commission’s BRAVO Performing Arts series.
