Time to break out your best patriotic gear - the 4th is only a week away!! Whether you’re spending the 4th with your friends, your boo, or your family, Downtown Bellevue has exactly what you need to have the best 4th of July ever. It’s not very often that you get to party on a Thursday, right? Check out the best of Downtown Bellevue this year. 

Spend it with Friends:

What’s your perfect night out? Here's what we think will make this a holiday to remember.

Bellevue Four on the 4th – Kick off Independence Day with a good cause. Four on the 4th is a non-competitive 4K that helps to raise money for the Seattle Humane Society. Did we mention there will also be a bunch of pups? Yeah, we knew you’d be in. 

So, head down with your pals, grab your pup, and explore Downtown!

Looking for things to do afterwards? Check our Puppy’s Day Out blog on the best dog-friendly locations in Downtown Bellevue. Grab a drink, grab a bite, go on an adventure after the 4K.

4th of July BBQ – What’s next? Well, it isn’t the 4th of July without a summer BBQ, and Bake’s Place is hosting the fanciest one in town. For about $60 you can eat your fill while rocking out with Ventura Highway Revisited. That's it? Of course not! What’s even better is the festivities end just in time for you to catch the fireworks at Bellevue Downtown Park!

Spend it with Someone Special:

Whoever you are celebrating with, you're bound to have an amazing day.

The Lake House – Don't know what to do with your morning? Why not enjoy brunch at the Lake House? Located on the second floor of Lincoln Square South, this restaurant features vibrant, farm-inspired craft cooking. With only the highest quality ingredients locally Chef Jason Wilson is sure to impress. 

Ascend 4th of July & Birthday Bash – Break out that cocktail dress and dust off your suit, because it's time to get fancy. Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi is celebrating their first birthday bash - featuring fine dining, Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne, Cirque de Soleil inspired performances, and a view of the Family 4th fireworks from the tallest viewpoints in Downtown Bellevue. Don’t miss out!

Spend it with Family:

The kids are out of school and the pressure is on. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list that will keep your kids active and entertained.

Bellevue Four on the 4th – This event bears repeating since it is a great place to bring the family! A little friendly competition never hurt anyone. So, break out your inner competitive drive. And don’t forget to visit the photo booth or the bouncy house before you leave!
