Day of Dhrupad only

Day of Dhrupad venue is in Ballard downtown. That is,  it is in the downtown area of the same neighborhood as Dibble House is.

To get to the venue by bus, routes 15,18,17 and 44 all work nicely, as does Seattle Metro’s D line.

Ballard downtown is well connected, and there are several options for lodging, in the Ballard, Phinney or Wallingford neighborhoods of Seattle as well as downtown Seattle.


They say that summer in Seattle begins on July 4th. That is it can still be cool and rainy in July – or it could be spectacularly sunny. So bring a light, water proof jacket. Seattle never gets really hot (average temperature in July ranges from 55F – 75F).  So spring/fall clothing are better suited to Seattle in July than summer clothing.
