The Sustainable Ballard Festival is one of the highlights of the year for Ballard, drawing over 4,000 attendees. It is an important showcase of our community’s efforts to promote sustainable ways of living. Attendees get ideas and inspiration, make connections, and open their eyes to new possibilities for living more lightly on the earth. The Festival will return to Ballard Commons Park on September 28, 2019.
The festival is organized around action areas, such as transportation, civic engagement, green building, water, food and garden, health & well-being, media & communication, and so on. Attendees have many opportunities to express themselves, learn new skills, share ideas and just play!
Every year, we invite the Ballard community and local green organizations to help create this unique and joyful celebration. Your support helps us to cover costs of this free public event and to provide quality education to the community throughout the year. Your sponsorship also offers you a unique and low cost/high value publicity opportunity.
This year, to give extra focus to the steps each of us might take to live more sustainably, our theme is Green Steps!
Sponsorship is a great way to take a stand for a healthier planet while promoting your products and services to thousands of potential customers. If you are a socially and environmentally responsible organization or company and would like to sponsor the festival, please review our sponsorship levels below, then use our online application. The deadline to apply is August 17.
