Various locations Ballard
Originally started as a celebration of the neighborhood’s fishing industry in 1974, this festival has expanded over the years to include a salmon dinner, a crab shack, a beer garden replete with local craft brews like Stoup Brewing and Reuben's Brews, food and artisan craft vendors, and music. This year's music lineup includes Welsh alternative rock band the Joy Formidable, Portland-based singer/songwriter Kyle Craft, and Everett folk rockers the Moondoggies, among many others. Gluttons for punishment can enroll in the lutefisk eating contest, an annual competition to see who can scarf the most of the salty, gelatinous fish.
