The Ballard P-Patch (8527 25th Ave NW) will host it’s annual Art in the Garden fundraiser this Saturday, featuring live music, offerings from several local food trucks, and of course, a bevy of work from local artists nestled throughout the vibrant colors of the garden.
The primary fundraiser for the P-Patch, Art in the Garden is now in its 14th year, with this year’s event taking place rain or shine from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Along with improving and maintaining the garden, the funds raised also go to support the P-Patch’s Giving Gardens for the Ballard Food Bank.
Along with works from the likes of local artists like Debbie Abbott, Bill Freeman, Larry Snyder, and others, the event will have several dining options from food trucks How Pickle Got Out of a Jam, Crazy Taco, and Mad Dawg’s Hot Dogs, along with desert offerings from Whidbey Island Ice Cream, and brews in the beer garden from Maritime Pacific. Homemade baked goods and freshly made pies will also be up for sale.
Artwork, gift baskets of wine, and gift certificates are among the many items offered in this year’s silent auction.
For kids, Seattle Face Paint will be on hand, and children can also participate in other activities including creating a windsock, and learning about urban farming during a chicken meet-and-greet.
Garden ambassadors will be on hand to answer any questions, and to identify what plants you see in any one of the 80 plus individual garden plots.
