Ballard SeafoodFest is celebrating 45 years as north Seattle’s largest and longest running free festival celebrating seafood, Ballard’s craft beer and great music.
There are many local standouts in this year’s music lineup, as well as some stellar international sensations. The 2019 festival headliner band is The Joy Formidable, playing on the Gravity Payments MainStage on Saturday, July 13, 2019.
“We look forward to an amazing talent lineup for our 2019 Ballard,” said Ballard SeafoodFest Director Mike Stewart. “Ballard SeafoodFest is not only a seafood festival that celebrates the Ballard neighborhood but it is also the only free music festival providing this level of entertainment in Seattle this summer.”

Ballard SeafoodFest began as a neighborhood salmon barbecue and continues to celebrate the rich history and character of Ballard while growing each year. The festival will open with Friday evening’s free all-ages concert featuring Seattle’s favorite 80s cover band, “NiteWave” and “#All4Doras”. For those 21 years and older, the SeafoodFest Beer Garden also opens on Friday evening and several food trucks will be available for all ages.
The fun continues on Saturday and Sunday with the full assortment of food, beverages and activities.
