Welcome to Fife
Once a small farming town, Fife has grown into a hub of community, industry, and retail opportunities. Fife is located conveniently between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport & the Port of Tacoma, intersected by I-5, and at the edges of Pierce & King Counties
No B+O tax, I-5 exposure, low tax rates, and a responsive City Government and Chamber of Commerce make the City of Fife the perfect place to do business.
"Fife is close to everything, centrally located, and no parking issues like in Tacoma." Michael Joy, W.J. Bradley Mortgage Corp.
Fife is also a wonderful town to call home. With an award-winning school district and miles of parks and trails to explore, your family will love Fife. You'll enjoy the History Museum/Dacca Barn year-round or the annual Harvest Festival.
Fife was founded in 1957 and was named after William J. Fife, a prominent Tacoma lawyer, once head of the Washington National Guard, and a Lieutenant Colonel in the field during the Philippine Insurrection. Fife covers roughly 5.7 square miles of land between the Puyallup River and Puget Sound.
According to the Census Bureau, in 2018, about 10, 200 people call Fife home.
