THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO MADE BALLARD SEAFOODFEST 2018 AN AMAZING EVENT.
PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS, DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS, NEIGHBORS, STAFF AND BOARD MEMBERS! HIPP HIPP HURRA!

Check back with us for details about our 2019 festival – when we will once again celebrate everything
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.
