Next Monday is Earth Day (April 22), which means there will be several events this weekend and next week to celebrate.
Here’s a rundown of things happening around Ballard:
Friday, April 19:
- Pints & Public Lands Film Fest: An Earth Day Celebration 7 -. 9pm. Join Washington Wild & American Whitewater at Peddler Brewing Company for a free outdoor Public Lands Film Screening of Run Wild, Run Free in the covered beer garden to celebrate Earth Day. $1 per pint will be donated to Washington Wild in honor of the Brewshed® Alliance.
Saturday, April 20:
- Earth Day Celebration at Shilshole Marina. 9am – 1pm, free. Learn about supporting marine life, sustainable living, pollution prevention, clean up, and waste management.

- Earth Day Plogging. 9am – noon at Fjällräven, Downtown. This one’s not in Ballard, but it may as well be: “Plogging” is the “mash up of jogging and the Swedish ‘plocka upp’ or pick up.” Essentially: picking up trash while spending time outside. They’ll meet at the store at 9am and will head out around downtown from there, with a “special surprise” back at the store after the heavy plogging.
