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.
