Festival Preview: WA: 7/12 & 7/13 Come to Ballard BeerFest and Ballard SeafoodFest

Since 1974, the Ballard SeafoodFest has remained one of the last, free, community events - in Seattle. Located in the historic Ballard neighborhood, the Ballard SeafoodFest celebrates the community, while supporting the Ballard Chamber of Commerce.The two day event features seafood-inspired meals, free live-music, activities for children, arts & crafts for purchase, and even a beer garden.

Ballard’s deep roots in the brewing industry trace back to its establishment as a Scandinavian enclave of Seattle, a community steeped in European customs, including the centuries-old tradition of brewing. 
As the former home of one of Washington’s largest and oldest microbreweries, Redhook Brewing, Ballard is the birthplace of modern craft brewing. 

The beer garden at SeafoodFest celebrates and showcases the best brews that Ballard has to offer as well as beers from neighboring ‘hoods and communities.  With the many unique beers we're serving, you’ll be sure to find a new fave or two. 

The Ballard BeerFest, as it's been called, features breweries from as far North as Bellingham and as far South as Eugene (Oregon). Included in this year's SeafoodFest the following breweries will be present:
