The Bellevue Festival of the Arts…

is a juried arts and crafts fair located just across Lake Washington from Seattle. Its prime location by Cost Plus World Market, just north of Bellevue Square, is in the heart of a vibrant city. Produced by the Craft Cooperative of the Northwest, and organized by artists, it continues to support a variety of non-profits with proceeds from the festival. Celebrating its 32nd year in 2016, the festival features 200 of the most talented and popular artisans, musicians and craftspeople from the Northwest and beyond. The Bellevue Festival of the Arts takes place the last full weekend in July in downtown Bellevue, Washington along with the two art fairs, Bellevue Art Museum’s ARTSfair and Bellevue’s 6th Street Fair.
