SeafoodFest Celebrates 50 Years of Fish, Fun and Friends this Summer

Mark your calendars for the Ballard SeafoodFest on July 12-14, 2024! This three-day festival is a beloved tradition in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood, and it’s the perfect way to celebrate the height of summer.

Seafood lovers will be in heaven at the festival, with a variety of dishes to indulge in. Whether you prefer grilled shrimp, clam chowder, or Alder-smoked salmon, there’s something for everyone. And if you have a sweet tooth, you won’t want to miss the delicious desserts and sweet treats available from local businesses and vendors.

Ballard SeafoodFest has more than food to offer festivalgoers. The festival features live music on the Gravity Payments MainStage, local entertainment, and activities for the whole family. You can listen to local bands and performers, browse the work of talented artists and artisans, and participate in games and activities for all ages.

But perhaps the best part of the Ballard SeafoodFest is that it supports the local community. Proceeds from the festival support projects and programs spearheaded by the Ballard Alliance that aim to make Ballard one of the best places to live, work, and play. Therefore, when you attend the festival, you’re not just enjoying great food and entertainment, you’re also giving back to the larger community.

So save the date for July 14-16, 2023, and experience all that Ballard SeafoodFest offers! With delicious food, lively entertainment, and a sense of community, it’s the perfect way to celebrate summer in Seattle.

We extend a heartfelt thank you to our generous sponsors for their invaluable support this year:
