Don’t be timid—step up to the plate and “Feed YOUR Inner Viking!” Don your helmet, live large, and take a big helping of SeafoodFest. Ballard is where the fun begins and this year’s event is about all the things that make this place special—our unique Scandinavian heritage, a thriving maritime industry and our generous and fun people.


Don’t miss these heroes of everyone’s favorite Discovery Channel show, Deadliest Catch. Captains Larry Hendricks and Sig Hansen, born and bred in Ballard, along with fellow captains Johnathan Hillstrand and Phil Harris, join us straight from their crab boats in Alaska. Hear tales of the sea, see your idol and ask those questions only they can answer. The guys will hang around to sign autographs and share their “Kings of Crab” souvenirs. What a catch for SeafoodFest! And deadly only in their charming good looks.
