The Bellevue Community Foundation has announced that the Bellevue Rocks! Riverfront Festival will grow to a four-day event this year and will be held June 8th - 11th, 2023 at American Heroes Park in Bellevue. Here is all of the information from their press release:
This year’s festival will once again feature amazing FREE live music, Thursday thru Saturday nights headlined by High Heel on Thursday Night, Yellow Brick Road (A Tribute to Elton John) on Friday night, & Multi-Platinum recording artist Uncle Kracker on Saturday night. Plus the return of the huge family friendly, famous Heart of America Carnival to Bellevue’s Riverfront with rides and attractions that were extremely popular for our community last year.
It was great to see so many people turn out last year to enjoy Bellevue’s largest celebration during this fun filled weekend. We are expecting another huge turnout this year and have worked with the Bellevue Police Department to take steps to improve traffic flow and have stepped up many other amenities so Bellevue residents and visitors to our community can enjoy a great event. Shuttles will be available on Friday and Saturday evening from Bellevue East High School. These shuttles are free and highly recommended since they will have a designated lane to get visitors right to the front gate of the festival. A clear bag policy will be enforced at the gate and no one will be admitted into the festival after 10:30pm.
We are grateful that our friends at DJ's Dugout, Bellevue Keno and the proposed Belle Vue Downs Horse Track have teamed together as title sponsors once again this year and joined our Premier Sponsors of Beardmore Subaru, Everlight Solar and Back to the River Inc. to help bring this great weekend of entertainment to Bellevue. An event of this magnitude cannot happen without the support of the community and our list of sponsors at all levels is very representative of Bellevue.
“The Bellevue Community Foundation is thrilled to host Bellevue’s biggest annual community celebration once again this year,” said Matt Goetz, Vice President of the Bellevue Community Foundation. “We are really excited about the opportunities for residents of all ages to enjoy this festival and we are excited to again bring an event of this magnitude to Bellevue with no admission fee thanks to the wonderful community sponsors that make this possible,” said Goetz.

The Bellevue Community Foundation was formed in 2012 with the goal of working together to help the Bellevue Community grow and prosper, not only now, but for future generations. Hosting an event like Bellevue Rocks! RiverFront Festival is a perfect way for BCF to partner with the City of Bellevue and give back to the Bellevue community.
