Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future...you'll find all this and more at the 13th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival. When you join this group of Ballard neighbors on Aug 27th at Ballard Commons Park, you'll encounter creativity, passion and community while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. In a time of uncertainty about our nation's leadership, People Power has been chosen as this year's festival theme as a reminder of what is still possible locally and as a model for all communities.
Sustainable Ballard has a lot planned for its annual festival this September 19th. Combining creativity, passion and community, this group of Ballard neighbors always "brings it" to produce an exceptional event full of quirky mischief and old-fashioned fun. Attendees will also learn daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. This year's festival is sporting a garden party theme featuring a Taste of Ballard Tea Garden with delicious treats and an "Alice in Wonderland" atmosphere.
Family-friendly, FREE, and full of surprises, the Sustainable Ballard Festival is celebrating its 11th year! Come sample Ballard craft brews and delicious bites, win prizes, catch live music on the solar-powered main stage, watch cooking demonstrations, test ride a cargo bike, make your own green cleaning product, and meet farm animals! Reuse and Recycling is a dominant theme this year, with trash fashion, car-seat recycling, a kids bike and pet parade (we supply the re-purposed frippery), a local coffee cup campaign and more.
