When: August 7, 10am-5pm
Where: Ballard P-Patch
The 19th Annual Art in the Garden festival is happening this August at the Ballard P-Patch (8527 25th Ave NW).
The yearly festival will have an extra reason to celebrate this year, as the Ballard P-Patch has been secured for future generations thanks to donations and public funding.
The gardeners of the 44-year-old p-patch were at risk of losing their small plot when Our Redeemers announced plans to sell the site in 2019. Our Redeemers had been leasing the plot to the City of Seattle for just $1 per year, for over four decades, but announced plans to sell it so they could pay for renovations in the church.
The p-patch caretakers were busy fundraising all last year, and in December, received a large donation from Amazon to help secure the garden for years to come.
This year’s Art in the Garden will take place August 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free event will feature artist booths, a treasure hunt for kids, ice cream, espresso, bake sale, live music, and a “wine grab” in which $15 will get you a bottle of your choice of wine. The artists will include block printers, sculpture artists, and glass artists.
