For more than 60 years, Bellevue Arts Museum has been celebrating the connection between our community and the world of art, craft, and design. For three full days every July, we transform downtown Bellevue into a massive arts festival featuring over 300 juried artists from around the continent showcasing unique, handmade craft and fine art. In addition, we offer a multitude of free community arts programming including; KIDSfair, BAM Exhibtions, public installations, and delicious eats.

In the meantime, don't be a stranger and join us for equally exciting exhibitions and programs year-round and opportunities to shop from Fair artists in our Museum Store!


BAM ARTSfair is the original, longest-running fair in downtown Bellevue and held in conjunction with two other fairs, the Bellevue Festival of the Arts and 6th Street Fair.
