Art in the Garden

Art in the Garden 2014 will be on 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!  It is poised to be our biggest and best yet.  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 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 at the food trucks,  a scoop or two of your favorite flavor from Whidbey Island Ice Cream , then relax with a cold Maritime Pacific at our Beer Garden on the patio.

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 sign painting, and visiting the chicken meet and greet to learn about urban farming.  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.
