BALLARD + SEAFOOD + MUSIC + CRAFT BREWED + SUMMERTIME FUN
SeafoodFest began in 1974 as a community celebration of Ballard’s historic connection to the fishing industry and the neighborhood’s Nordic roots. Today, this free three-day festival attracts over 75,000 people who come to enjoy the traditional salmon barbecue and much more: local music, arts and crafts, family entertainment, a beer garden, a skateboarding event, and yes – lots of seafood!
Oh wait. Did we tell you the event is FREE? Well, it is. We think you should spend your hard-earned cash on seafood…like salmon and crab.
