Art in the Garden


Saturday, August 2nd from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. – rain or shine!

Art in the Garden is celebrating its 14th year at the Ballard P-Patch Community Garden!  Join us for a few hours, or for the entire day on Saturday, August 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine, for this free family event.  The garden is a hidden gem nestled at 8527 25th Ave NW.

Walk around gorgeous dahlias, ripening tomatoes and giant sunflowers as you discover local artists, enjoy live acoustic music, grab a bite to eat from How Pickle Got Out of a Jam, Crazy Taco, and Mad Dawg’s Hot Dogs food truck, then relax with a cold Maritime Pacific at our Beer Garden on the patio.  Don’t forget to beat the heat with a sweet treat from Whidbey Island Ice Cream.

Our talented gardeners will have homemade baked goods for sale and freshly handmade pies to auction off – prices go up fast and pies go even faster.  Try your best bidding tactics at the silent auction to win artwork, gift baskets of wine, and much more. Kids will have fun choosing a festive design from Seattle Face Paint, creating a windsock and learning about urban farming at the chicken meet-and-greet.  There will be garden ambassadors to answer any questions you may have, from the history of the garden to helping you identify what is growing in over 80 individual garden plots.

Art in the Garden is the primary fundraiser for the Ballard P-Patch, and supports our Giving Gardens for the Ballard Food Bank, as well as our on-going efforts to improve our garden and maintain it for the entire community.  We look forward to seeing you at our garden on Saturday, August 2 to support and celebrate this beautiful community asset.
