From Sustainable Ballard
Thank you for coming to the 9th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival, Sept. 30, 2012!
It was a smashing success and a beautiful day! We all enjoyed hoola-hooping to great music, a bustling kids area, freshly pressed cider, bike test-drives, all kinds of solar information and much more. The cafe on the Rapid Ride bus was a big success, as was Bubbleman and the new and improved food cart area.

The Sustainable Ballard Festival is one of the highlights of the year for Ballard. Over the years, the festival has grown into an important showcase of our community’s efforts to promote sustainable ways of living. Each year, we celebrate our successes through engaging activities, how-to workshops, community building, art, music and creativity and old-fashioned family fun. Attendees learn together, get ideas and inspiration, make connections, and open their eyes and hearts to new possibilities for living more lightly on the earth.
