Join us for the Sustainable Ballard FestivalSaturday, August 27, 11am – 4pm at Ballard Commons Park.  This year it’s a bit earlier in the year and the weather promises to be sunny and hot! You’ll encounter creativity, passion and community while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. In a time of uncertainty about our nation’s leadership, People Power has been chosen as this year’s festival theme as a reminder of what is still possible locally and as a model for all communities.

As always, the fest is FREE to the public and perfect for families. The Mayor will kick off the fest and a bike parade organized by Seattle Summer Parkways.  There will be a creation station for bubble wands, musical instruments, and bottle cap flowers. Find skateboard lessons in the skate bowl, a family bike expo on the street, goats and chickens in the urban farm zone, live music on the solar powered stage, and birdhouse building with festival sponsor Built Green.  Local businesses offer food, games, activities and prizes with a green twist.  Come on over and talk to us about SOLAR or Electric Vehicles, we’ll be there to answer your questions.

See you there!
