the scoop:

This year, Sustainable Ballard has a lot planned for its annual festival. 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.

As always, the fest is FREE to the public and perfect for families. The Mayor is expected to kickoff the fest with a bike parade organized by Seattle Summer Parkways. There will be a creation station for bubblewands, musical instruments, and bottlecap flowers. Find skateboard lessons in the skatebowl, a family bike expo on the street, goats and chickens in the urban farm zone, live music on the solar powered stage, and birdhouse building with festival sponsor Built Green. Local businesses will be offering games, activities and prizes with a green twist. There will also be food carts and a Tea Garden presented by Miro Tea, a fundraiser for the festival featuring local desserts and unlimited tea sampling for a $5 donation.
