Get ready to sip a cold one amongst the flowers: the 12th annual Art in the Garden Festival is coming up soon at the Ballard P-Patch (8527 25th Ave. NW). On Saturday, August 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the free event will feature music, local artists’ work, and food and drinks. All funds raised will go to support improvement projects throughout the year, including container beds and crushed gravel pathways in the P-Patch.

From the organizers:
Enjoy a day strolling through gardens filled with colorful blooming flowers, vegetables at their peak, while listening to live acoustic music and discovering creations by 24 local artists. Relax at the patio beer garden for lunch, dinner, or both. Indulge in homemade desserts at the bake sale and pie auction. Family friendly and free, there is something for all ages at Art in the Garden.
The Ballard P-Patch was founded in 1976, making it one of the oldest in the city. It has over 90 plots, and four of the largest plots are dedicated to growing produce for the Ballard Food Bank.
