The BELLEVUE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL is presented by the Eastside Heritage Center, in cooperation with and support from the City of Bellevue.
The festival is a revitialization of an old Bellevue tradition, dating back to when strawberry farming was one of the region's most famous activities. The festival has been held in various places around Bellevue, starting (in its recent incarnation) on Main Street in Old Bellevue, moving to the downtown park, and most recently in the Crossroads Park.
We celebrate Strawberries and community on the fourth weekend of June. Entertainment, an auto show, vendors, food, and family fun are all highly visible parts of the festivities. And, you will very likely see a strawberry or two (shortcake eating contests, strawberry flats, chocolate covered strawberries, and much more).
2010 Participation Forms are Available
Forms for AUTO SHOW participation can be found on the PARTICIPATION page. Thanks to your support, we have accepted and filled all positions in the SPONSORSHIPS, FOOD & BOOTH VENDORS, and ENTERTAINERS.
The Strawberry Festival features a wide variety of entertainment. Our main stage features a wide variety of music, interrupted with the occasional strawberry shortcake eating contest! We also have roving performers, especiall in the Microsoft Playtest Family Fun area who interact with kids.
