 BDA Annual Celebration 

February 8, 2024

We can't thank you enough for all the support we received at our 49th Annual Celebration! Our gratitude goes out to the 400+ people who joined us to celebrate our thriving and vibrant Downtown. Here are our favorite highlights:

  • Jennifer Vey and Nate Storring's keynote conversation about Downtown Bellevue's Hyperlocal future moderated by Putter Bert! We learned that getting strategically messy can be the key to building a great Downtown.
  • We honored Ross Jacobson for his longtime civic work in Downtown Bellevue with the John Boespflug City Builder Award!  Thank you to Sarah Langton for presenting the award.
  • New BDA Board Chair Trinity Parker (she/her), took the stage to recognize and welcome new board members as well as highlight how important it is to create an inclusive Downtown for all.
  • Finally, we told the stories of the many small businesses that have made a positive impact in our community.

Please save the date for this time next year for BDA's 50th Annual Celebration!
