In the Know: Ballard SeafoodFest July 9-10

The two-day, all ages and free The Ballard 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 festival attracts over 65,000 people who come to enjoy the traditional salmon barbecue and much more: local music, arts and crafts, family entertainment, a beer garden, a skate event, and yes – more seafood! The event is Saturday, July 9: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm and Sunday, July 10: 11:00 am – 9:00 pm.



Headlining the 2016 Ballard SeafoodFest is local grunge legend, Mudhoney, headed by the infamous Mark Arm, Steve Turner, Dan Peters and Guy Maddison. Notable alternative duo, Helio Sequence, will also deliver their kinetic energy to the stage with their nu-wave, northwest sound.
