The annual festival of all things fishy, Ballard SeafoodFest, has been cancelled for 2020.
“It is with heavy hearts and a little sea spray in our eyes that we have made the decision to cancel our planned July 10 – 12, 2020 event,” Mike Stewart, Executive Director of the Ballard Alliance writes, adding that they explored every option to reschedule.
“Unfortunately, ensuring the health and well-being of our neighbors and visitors while providing an exceptional festival experience that our community has come to know and love is not possible in 2020.”
Despite the event cancellation, the Stewart says they’ll aim to create an alternative celebration, “virtual or otherwise, to keep the spirit of SeafoodFest alive and honor all the businesses and neighbors who have supported us over the years.”
We’ll update on any details as they become available.
