Bellevue downtown arts market returns in-person for Labor Day weekend

More than 110 artists are set to participate.

For the 31st year, the Bellevue Downtown Association is proud to present the Bellevue Downtown Arts Market, an open-air showcase of sculpture, jewelry, home décor, wood and glass work, fabrics, and other local crafts.

Previously known as the 6th Street Arts Fair, the Bellevue Downtown Arts Market will take place over Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4-6, in Downtown Bellevue between NE 6th Street and 106th

Avenue NE.

In past years, the event took place in July as part of the award-winning Arts Fair Weekend alongside the Bellevue Arts Museum ARTSfair.

“We’re thrilled to bring back another in-person event this summer,” Patrick Bannon, BDA President, said. “The Bellevue Downtown Arts Market is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate

local art, live music, and unique food; definitely an event you won’t want to miss.”

Live music returns to the Arts Market weekend, supported by Amazon. It will range from music around the world, including folk, blues, and flamenco guitar.

Event information, including an artist directory and directions, are available at For day-of event updates, follow the Bellevue Downtown Association
