The Bellevue Festival of the Arts is a juried fine art and craft fair located just across Lake Washington from Seattle. Its prime open-air location along Bellevue Way and NE 8th 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 33rd year in 2017, 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.
