Bellevue Magic Season

A holiday tradition produced by the Bellevue Downtown Association, Bellevue Magic Season returns each year with six festive weeks of brilliant lights, glistening ice, memorable music and spectacular performances.

Ice Arena

Glide to the music with family and friends at the Magic Season Ice Arena. This skating rink, located in Ashwood Park, is the region's only open-air holiday ice skating experience. The festive venue offers shelter for all-weather skating and is home to a series of special events, themed activities, and skating lessons. 

Holiday Theatre Performances

Garden d'Lights

Watch nature blossom into color during the winter months at Garden d'Lights at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. The lights festival features over a half million lights that transform the flowers, trees, and bushes into a winter wonderland.  

KidsQuest's Gingerbread Lane  

Kick off the holiday season with KidsQuest Children's Museum's Family Gingerbread House Workshops at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. Work together with family or friends to decorate a unique gingerbread house to take home for the holidays.

Snowflake Lane and Celebration Lane

Snowflake Lane at The Bellevue CollectionJoin in the 10th Anniversary of Snowflake Lane at The Bellevue Collection, a magical evening performance taking place nightly on the streets of downtown Bellevue. Snowflake Lane features more than 200 live toy soldier drummers, costumed characters, lively music, falling snow and glittering lights. Plus, don't miss the holiday performance by the Jingle Belles. 

Celebration Lane at The Bellevue CollectionAfter Christmas (December 26 - 31) the fun continues with Celebration Lane at The Bellevue Collection. This nightly event is a celebratory salute to the New Year with a display of brilliant lights and music that has everyone rocking to the beat with added fun as the drummers and characters dance to lively songs.
