16th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival will share the fun Sept. 28
Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future... that's Sustainable Ballard and the 16th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival. Join this group of Ballard neighbors on Sept 28th at Ballard Commons Park at 5701 22nd Ave NW for creativity, passion and community-building while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. This year's theme of "Green Steps" focuses on actions big and small that neighbors can take to reduce their carbon footprint.
The Sustainable Ballard festival is your treasure map of responsible local businesses, sustainability education and just plain fun. Press apple cider, peek under the hood of an electric car, test ride an electric bike, make your own bubble wand, learn about solar for your home, buy a raffle ticket! Stop by a food cart and sample healthy local food, enjoy live music, or stop by Festival sponsor Built Green's booth and build a recycled birdhouse. As always, the fest is FREE to the public and perfect for families!
With a membership of nearly 2000, Sustainable Ballard demonstrates that energy independence and self-reliance does not mean "going it alone." Attendees are participants and co-creators of the festival experience, and everyone in the community is welcome. While the mood is festive, the message is a serious one – to discover new possibilities and a deepened commitment to living more lightly on the Earth. The choices we make daily can affect global climate change. Ballard neighbors and friends are invited to connect with each other by volunteering at the festival. When we engage, we become part of creating the thriving community and lifestyle we want and need.
