It’s all happening at Tacoma Art Museum this Sunday: The annual Let It Snow free community festival also includes the second annual 20/20 Identity and Portrait Project, featuring 20 local individuals sharing stories and photographic portraits in anticipation of the major photographic exhibition Hide/Seek coming to TAM in 2012.

The festival ushers in winter with music from bell choir the Rainier Ringers, dance performances from Metro Arts and Grant Elementary students, make-it-yourself pop-up holiday cards or ornaments and more. You can also walk across Pacific Avenue to the new ice rink, co-sponsored by the museum. All museum entry is free during the festival.

Now in its second year, 20/20 gathers 20 community members to present personal stories and anecdotes accompanied by visual portraits. This year presenters include artists such as Lynn Di Nino, Oliver Doriss, Paul Pauper, Peter Serko, Angela Rockett, John Carlton and Ann Meersman; musician Pamela Ryker; playwright Rosalind Bell; theater director David Domkowski; public figures Tim Farrell, Clare Petrich, Dan Fear, Dawn Lucien and Helen Engle; museum directors Jackie Jones Hook and Mary Bowlby; soldier Ben Price; designer John Vlahovich and TAM’s Courtney Vowels.

Festival 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 4; 20/20 presentation 2 p.m. Dec. 4. Free. Tacoma Art Museum, 1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma. 253-272-4258, www.tacomaartmuseum.org
