Year after year, SeafoodFest prides itself in offering first-rate professional entertainers. This year is no exception! Two separate stages provide a broad appeal— one for youngsters and their families and the other for those with more grownup tastes. Whether you sit in the beer garden, on the lawn or under a tree, you can enjoy all of our entertainment free of charge. Come for one act or camp out for the whole weekend.Get ready for all the fun!
SeafoodFest has activities for all ages, but it's especially popular for kids! Whether you like music and puppets or want something more active, this festival's got it. Be sure to bring your friends and neighbors, and of course, your parents too!
NEW! The Big Purple Slide
This year, a new feature comes to SeafoodFest. You can't miss it, right on 22nd Avenue in front of the library. You'll climb up to great heights, then zip back to ground level in a fast and thrilling trip.
Fin, the Migrating Salmon
That 25-foot behemoth is back for another SeafoodFest. Thanks to Save the Wild Salmon, Fin’s creators, you can crawl through his insides and learn all about the amazing life cycle of salmon. But don’t worry, there are no slimy guts and it’s not like being swallowed by a whale. Fin is a friendly fellow and a really cool way to get a biology lesson.
My ID Club
OK, it's not a game, but this is a don't miss attraction. The King County Police Union will be here again to give parents tools for keeping kids safe. You'll get an ID card with your child’s photograph and fingerprint, along with a Child Safety manual. And it's all free of charge.
Jay Dotson Photography
Yes, live-and-in-person photo magnets of kids, adults and pets ON THE SPOT!
Ballard’s Station 18 Firefighters
Stop by to check out fire engines, get your own personal tour and dream of a future as a firefighter. Yes, you can!
What trip to a festival would be complete without a momento. We've got you covered. Stop by the Info Booth for a pint-sized Viking helmet, a t-shirt or maybe a piece of plundering equipment.
