Family-friendly, FREE, and full of surprises, the Sustainable Ballard Festival will be celebrating Built Green Logoits 12th year! Come join our GARDEN PARTY! Make a mad hat and sample Ballard’s tasty teas & sweets in the Taste of Ballard Tea Garden.  Built Green is our BIG sponsor this year so expect some great new ideas to reduce your carbon footprint around the home.

Many of your favorites will be back, plus more new activities, workshops, and hands-on games than ever before. Win prizes, catch live music on the solar-powered main stage, enter to win an electric bike, learn lots of new ways to upcycle, 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.
