The Bellevue Strawberry Festival is a sweet treat!
When the calendar flips to June, the anticipation builds for the annual event that honors the region’s agricultural heritage and brings together the community for a tasty treat known as the Bellevue Strawberry Festival!
Since 1925, this celebration has honored the yearly bounty of hearty strawberry crops that brought great prosperity and renown to the region. That original four-day event, full of family fun in Bellevue, WA, attracted more than 3,000 fruit-loving patrons to the Old Main Street School and put our city on the map! But don’t think this event, that continues to be one of the top things to do in Bellevue during the summer, still resembles its historic predecessor. Today, it has grown to be one of the most beloved Bellevue festivals of the year, becoming a large-scale community event that is located in the city’s Crossroads International Park!
Live Musical Entertainment
This year, the 2018 Bellevue Strawberry Festival takes place on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 and promises to be full of fruitful fun! Besides the non-stop live musical entertainment on the BECU Main Stage, there will be tons of other activities scattered throughout the park, from the games and activities in the Family Fun Area, to the agricultural demonstrations and multitude of vendors selling their sweet strawberry-inspired wares. And who can forget one of the highlights of the festival each and every year: the Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest!
