Eastside Heritage Center's annual Bellevue Strawberry Festival at Crossroads Park is presented this year by BECU. This year's Festival will take place on Saturday, June 24th from 10:00am-8:00pm and Sunday, June 25th from 10:00am-6:00pm.

The original Strawberry Festival was held on Main Street in Bellevue from 1925-1941. Eastside Heritage Center (EHC) hosts the historic event as a celebration of Bellevue's agricultural roots. Following their mission to share this regions history with the community, EHC has a Mini-Museum onsite at the Festival with artifact demonstrations and hands-on history activities including corn grinding, cow milking and time capsule making!

This year's exhibit will feature the 100 Year Anniversary of the Lowering of Lake Washington, and the 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066 that sent Japanese-Americans, who were the primary farmers of Bellevue’s abundant strawberry crops to incarceration camps during WWII and how it affected the Eastside.

There are also many FAMILY FRIENDLY activities to enjoy at the Strawberry Festival! All weekend long there will be live entertainment from the main stage, fresh strawberry shortcake, over 100 craft, business and food vendors, a Classic Auto Show (Sunday only) and a Family Fun Area. The Republic Services Family Fun Area has something for everyone, and includes carnival games, pony rides, inflatables, rock climbing, mini-golf, face painting and more! There will also be a Touch-a-Truck Event (Saturday only) with construction equipment provided by GLY Construction and Northwest Construction used to build projects right here on the Eastside, and the Bellevue Lions Club will be providing FREE health screening tests at their Health Screening Truck!

Free parking and shuttle rides available from Highland Middle School and Sherwood Forest Elementary.

A special thanks to Puget Sound Energy for being our Volunteer Sponsor!
