It’s the Season to Fall for Bellevue, Washington

From exploring outdoor fun in our breathtaking Pacific Northwest playground; like world-class sporting events and scenic day trips; to the hottest trends in fall fashion, restaurants and nightlife along with great weekend rates on fabulous hotels – adventure awaits you.

Fall Fashion

And it wouldn’t be fall without fashion. There’s plenty to see for the fashionista in Bellevue. This fall’s latest trends come to life on the runway during Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection, September 20 – 24, featuring three different runway shows and many other events.

Fashionistas will also want to check out The Shops at the Bravern.  Bottega Veneta and Oliver Peoples made their debut earlier in the summer. And Gene Juarez opens its new flagship salon and spa in September.

Enjoy Outdoor Activities

If you are an outdoor sports lover, don’t miss the 9th annual Round the Rock stand up paddle board event on September 10. Organized by Northwest Paddle Surfers, Round the Rock is the longest standing Stand up Paddle (SUP) event in the area. Every year, hundreds of athletes and passionate paddlers from all over the world depart from Bellevue’s beautiful Newcastle Beach Park and paddle around Mercer Island (the Rock). It’s fun to watch or paddle.

If hiking is your passion, we love the fall colors and miles of gorgeous trails at Bellevue’s own Mercer Slough Nature Park, Lewis Creek Park or Weowana Park. Or, head out along the Mountains to Sound Greenway and explore trails galore.

Fall also brings some great family festivals and activities. Don’t miss the fabulous Zip Scare Tour. Going on evenings, October 13-28, it’s a night-time zip-line adventure that will have you zipping through the evening sky with glow sticks lighting the way.

The Kelsey Creek Farm Fair happens Saturday, October 7 from 11-4 celebrating everything the season has to offer. Look for children’s crafts, inflatables, entertainment, tractor rides, and vintage tractor displays.

Or welcome autumn in the Pacific Northwest at the annual Salmon Days Festival in Issaquah, Washington. Taking place October 7 – 8 in Downtown Issaquah, just minutes east of Bellevue off I 90, Salmon Days is an award-winning fall season kick-off event.
