The 2019 Bellevue art festivities will be taking place on the weekend of July 26 through July 28. Two separate art fairs will be featured, Bellevue Arts Museum ARTSfair and Bellevue 6th Street Fair. There will be no Festival of the Arts happening this year, which used to take place in the location that was previously Cost Plus World Market and Destination Maternity. Due to anticipated construction on that lot for the Avenue Bellevue project, the fair could no longer occur.

Bellevue Arts Museum ARTSfair

Bellevue Arts Museum is celebrating their 73rd annual ArtsFair, which will feature thousands of original artworks, community programs, free admission to Bellevue Arts Museum, live music and more. There will be art from over three hundred independent artists who were selected by a jury of art and museum professionals. Patrons can participate in art-making, live performance art, and KIDSfair.

  1. The Bellevue Art Festival is so dull & very boring!! Year after year, there’s NEVER anything “spectacular” happening at this “so-called” Art Festival. It’s just a “flea market” with vendors selling their stuff…although some of the art-decor does look nice. In the past, I’ve seen booths selling different food items like stir fried Asian food where the line is long & a barbeque booth next to it where there is no line at all…funny…the guy’s face looked angry.
