Pre-Festival Work Parties – bring your creative self!

Like its predecessors, the 14th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival will include whimsical features made by people in our neighborhood.  We’d love for you to join the action by helping create the environment that makes the Sustainable Ballard Festival special.  This is a fun way to get involved with Sustainable Ballard and the festival, get to know some of your neighbors, perhaps learn something new!  No skills needed – there are jobs for everyone. Plus, there will be food, drink and merriment!  You can come by for an hour, or two or three.  For more information and to RSVP, email
