2019 Sustainable Ballard Festival

Welcome to the 16th annual Sustainable Ballard Festival Sign-Up!

It's our big event of the year -- part community builder, part educational, part fundraiser, and of course, part party!! There are many ways you can help out and be part of this exciting event. It's a great way to meet your neighbors and other Sustainable Ballard members, and support your community while having fun! This year our orientation/party will be 6-8 pm, Thursday eve before the festival at Peddler Brewing. Please mark your calendar!

Additionally, all volunteers will have access to great benefits:

-An amazing festival T-shirt!
-Admission to the Volunteer Hospitality Booth where there will be snacks, drinks, and great conversation.
-A gift bag filled with treats and goodies from our sponsors and partners
-An exclusive invitation to a volunteer-only after party where we bask in the aftermath of a successful festival and relax after all the hard work, while enjoying a drink -- on us!

More information can be found on our Festival Volunteer page: Festival Volunteer
