The 77th annual Bellevue Arts Museum Arts Fair is the Pacific Northwest's leading arts and crafts festival and is scheduled for July 28–30, 2023 in downtown Bellevue. We work with an estimated 15 food vendors to provide high quality food and beverages to hundreds of thousands of fairgoers. Vendors will be considered based on menu, booth signage, booth structure, and décor. Bellevue Arts Museum is searching for both innovative menus and experienced concessionaires. Applications are closed. Please check back for Arts Fair 2024 updates.
