Ballard Commons Park

Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future… that’s Sustainable Ballard and the 15th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival.  Join your Ballard neighbors on September 22nd at Ballard Commons Park for creativity, passion and community-building while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. This year’s theme is “Find Your Path” focusing on the many ways that neighbors are connecting to improve the community.

Family-friendly, fun, FREE, and full of surprises!  This year we are exploring ways to FIND YOUR PATH in the community!  Visit local sustainable businesses and non-profits, catch some local buskers, sample tasty tea, coffee & sweets in the Tea Garden.  Built Green is our Festival Sponsor again this year — find out more about why green building is better for the climate, more comfortable, and healthier, and how it strengthens community! Columbia Bank is our Theme Sponsor — have you visited their new NeighborHub?

Many of your favorites will be back, plus more new activities, workshops, and hands-on games than ever before.  Enter to win prizes, learn new ways to lower your carbon footprint, help us make fresh cider and meet farm animals! 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.

We are grateful to all of our sponsors, without whom the Festival would not be possible, including:
