  1. The concert listed as September 31 should say August 31.

  2. It would be great if there was a google calendar (or other ical) of these events so that one could easily incorporate these events into one's personal online calendar.

    1. Charley, if you use iPhone, you can find the schedule by searching for "Ballard Locks" in the iPhone app "HipHappen Seattle".

  3. I would like to know if there are chairs set up for the concerts. I would like to go but cannot stand for long periods of time.

    1. Yes, Trella. The rangers do put out folding chairs for the crowd. You should be ok in that regard. Enjoy!

  4. Hello,
    Is there any contact information (email or telephone number) that I can be in touch with concerning concerts in 2015? Thank you.

    1. Hi Marcie,
      You might try the Locks Visitor Center. I don't know when they finalize the schedule but perhaps they would have some info there. Also the Chittenden Locks are on Facebook and that may be worth a look as well.
      Visitor Center at (206) 783-7059
      Good luck.
