65th Annual Spaghetti Dinner
Night at the Movies
Saturday, February 3 5:30-8:30pm
Ballard High School Commons
After last year's amazing return to in-person events, we are so excited for this year's live performances and our community-style dinner. The theme this year is Night at the Movies, featuring memorable tunes performed by every Ballard Performing Arts choir, band and orchestra group -- plus a sneak peek at the spring musical, The Addams Family.
The BPA Spaghetti Dinner is Ballard High School's longest running tradition and with good reason! Great food, friends and entertainment have been the constant every year. And this year promises more of the same, along with a few fun surprises to go with our theme!

About the Spaghetti Dinner
The Spaghetti Dinner has been a BPA annual fundraiser event since 1959. Started originally as a showcase for the greater Ballard community, the focus shifted in 2018 to an event for BPA families, alums and BHS staff & students. Admission to enjoy performances from every performing arts group, including a preview from the cast of the upcoming spring musical, is free. However, guests have the option of purchasing dinner tickets.
The traditional dinner is served buffet style and features salad, bread, spaghetti (with a very special sauce), and a small dessert. During the 54th year of this soiree, long-time BPA volunteer Peg Radford contributed her fantastic homemade spaghetti sauce recipe to the event. Year after year BPA has prepared and served this famous sauce using ingredients generously donated by many local businesses and BHS alums. At the end of the evening, any leftover sauce is bottled up and sold to lucky families who stick around to the end.
Guests can also buy raffle tickets for the chance to win prizes donated by local businesses. Tickets are available online prior to the event or at the door the night of the event.
