Bona Fide Bellevue Programs & Initiatives
With a variety of events, programs, and initiatives, there’s something for everybody throughout the year!
Improve The Vue
Improve the Vue focuses on community involvement in neighborhood upkeep and improvement. In addition to the annual Improv the Vue initiative, the committee volunteers work on a periodic basis to improve the quality of Bellevue streets, parks, businesses, and homes.
The Bellevue Farmers Market started in 2017 under the direction of a group of residents. They realized a charming, walkable community like Bellevue, PA deserved to have a market that was as exciting and dynamic as the town itself. Bellevue Farmers Market, a project of Bona Fide Bellevue, is a community nexus, bringing together food, families, and fun in a way that is accessible to all!
Bona Fide Bellevue Events
Good tunes and tasty brews at the Rhythm & Brews Festival, local art and fine wines at Bellevue’s Art & Wine Crawl, historical charm and architecture at the Live Worship Shop House Tour, and family fun (and spiked hot chocolate) at Light Up Bellevue! Bona Fide Bellevue brings it all to you.
Bellevue History and Historic Preservation
Bellevue is a borough flush with well over 1,000 turn of the century homes and buildings rich with character and charm. Learn more about our borough’s historical significance.
Since 2016 Bona Fide Bellevue has cultivated a public herb garden free to all to “pinch what you need, use what you pinch.” As our garden space continues to expand and we offer memberships in the Bellevue Friendship Garden, we’re always looking for those willing to lend a green thumb.
Bona Fide Bellevue Business Signage and Facade Grant Program
Bona Fide Bellevue has created a grant program to encourage downtown business owners and building owners to participate in energizing Bellevue’s business district with new and well-designed business signage and lighting.
DEI Award & Scholarship
We are committed to building relationships with the community and supporting efforts to improve understanding, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The DEI Award and Scholarship is intended to provide financial support to high school graduates who have demonstrated an exceptional interest or who are engaged in raising awareness in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusivity with the hope of creating a sense of belonging for everyone
Bellevue Mural Arts Program
The Bellevue Mural Arts Program is a creative placemaking program that incorporates murals into the high-traffic streets of Bellevue.
