Every two years the Bellevue Neighborhoods Conference offers residents the opportunity to attend workshops, connect with one another and explore and experience what is going on in Bellevue in new ways. 

2022 Edition - Experience Bellevue!

The 2022 edition of the Neighborhoods Conference – "Experience Bellevue!" – will be Saturday May 14, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at outdoor sites around the city and/or inside at City Hall (program || video). Experience Bellevue! is all about getting back out into the community following two years of the pandemic. We can’t wait to welcome you back to City Hall and a variety of other locations for a memorable day of experiencing this city.

There will be walking tours of Wilburton, the Spring District and East Link, as well as popular parks such as the Botanical Garden and Lewis Creek Park. Explore distinctive neighborhoods. Learn about the evolution of Bellevue's downtown, the Grand Connection and our changing skyline.

At City Hall, join skills workshops to tackle the art of listening, explore how to respond to cultural bias, learn lifesaving CPR or how to create an emergency kit on a shoestring budget.

It’s a full-day experience rich with inspiration and community connection! 

Kick off your day by meeting and mingling with members of your City Council, then custom design the rest of YOUR experience by choosing from 20 workshops and tours. Your $10 admission includes coffee, pastry and all workshops. Lunch is available at an additional cost.
