Sustainable Ballard Festival is September 30

The 9th annual Sustainable Ballard Festival is Sunday, September 30, at Ballard Commons Park. It’s a daylong celebration of community and everything “green,” sustainable, wholesome and fun.

This year the festival highlights green building and transportation choices. Festival goers will be able to learn about money-saving solar installations, rain gardens and cisterns; test-drive electric and cargo bikes; enjoy solar mini-car races; participate in do-it-yourself workshops and gather rewards for pledging new habits.

You can also visit the popular Undriver Licensing Station™, as well as the PCC Kid Picks Mobile and Bike Works Family Bike Expo. And there’s more: fresh-pressed cider, games with prizes, wellness practitioners, solar-powered live music (!) and delicious local food.

The festival runs from 11 am – 7pm at Ballard Commons Park (corner of NW 57th & 22nd NW). You can find more details here.
