Festival Overview

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Sept. 28, 2014 11am-6pm
Ballard Commons Park

Family-friendly, FREE, and full of surprises, the Sustainable Ballard Festival is about celebrating our successes over the past year! Test ride an electric bike, sample Ballard craft brews and delicious bites, win prizes, catch some live music on our solar-powered mainstage, press fresh cider, win prizes for “Name That Tool!” and even meet goats, chickens, rabbits, and ducks.  The festival features some all-time favorite exhibits, plus more new activities, workshops, and hands-on games than ever before. With 75 exhibits, from solar and wind turbine demos to the Citizen Activation Station, the Sustainable Ballard Festival is a fantastically fun opportunity to learn together, get inspired, and discover new ways to live more lightly on the earth.
