Bellevue invites guests to its historic strawberry festival on June 26 and 27. Every year thousands of festival participants celebrate the region’s strawberries. The Bellevue Strawberry Festival takes place at Crossroads Park, a few minutes from the Marriott Redmond Town Center. Festival goers can take advantage of Marriott Redmond’s low weekend rate starting at $129/night. This rate can be booked at the website: http://www.marriott.com/SEAMC.
Beginning when strawberry farming was the region’s most important crop, the Bellevue Strawberry Festival provides fun for all ages. Young children will be interested in the carnival games, miniature golf course and climbing wall, while adults will enjoy the sixth annual antique car show or the live musical performances. The Bellevue Strawberry Festival encourages all attendees regardless of age to enjoy eating strawberries or to watch the strawberry shortcake eating competition.
The strawberry festival has a long history, and festival goers can visit the festival’s mini museum to learn about the tradition of strawberry growing near Bellevue. To complement the mini museum, festival attendees can also see authentic farming tools used by farmers in the 1920s and 1930s.
