Sustainable Ballard depends on local environmental organizations and green businesses in order to stage the festival every year. Some of our sponsors will be present at the festival with wonderful educational and interactive exhibits that help visitors learn more about the dedication that these fine organizations have to creating a more sustainable world. See short descriptions of what you can expect, below.
