Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future… that’s Sustainable Ballard and the 16th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival.  This year’s festival theme is GREEN STEPS.  Join your Ballard neighbors on September 28th at Ballard Commons Park for creativity, passion and community-building while learning about daily practices and big GREEN STEPS toward more sustainable living. 

Family-friendly, fun, FREE, and full of surprises!  Visit local sustainable businesses and non-profits, catch some local buskers, enjoy refreshments from local food vendors.  Many of your favorites will be back, plus more new activities, workshops, and hands-on games than ever before.  Enter to win prizes, learn new ways to lower your carbon footprint, build a birdhouse, help us make fresh cider! The Sustainable Ballard Festival is a fantastically fun opportunity to learn together, get inspired, and discover new ways to live more lightly on the earth.
