Learn how to get into boating at Shilshole Boatfest and Seas the Bay!

This FREE event will get you and your family out on a boat (or many) and introduce you to people who can help navigate how to get into boating (even without owning a boat), how to boat safety, and how to protect the environment while boating so you can continue to enjoy the water after the event. Also enjoy kids’ activities, live music, food trucks, vendors celebrating our Ballard community, and more!
