Ballard Van Jam: Van festival returns for its third year

A van life festival is coming back to Ballard for its third annual Ballard Van Jam on Saturday, Sept. 16.

Ballard van outfitter Rydawell Builds hosts the yearly festival in which van owners flock to 324 NW Bowdoin Place to share their built-out vans. There’s also live music, giveaways, and food trucks.

Ryan Wells started Rydawell as a woodworking shop back in 2010 and then pivoted to building out vans into adventure vehicles.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you have a built-out van and you want to share it, you can register online.
