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.

Attendees will also learn daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living.
