Bellevue’s Taste of Main event Aug. 21 to help children on the Eastside

The second annual Taste of Main will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, in downtown Bellevue. Dozens of businesses on Main Street are generously helping to raise money and awareness for Children’s Response Center by participating in this year’s Taste of Main.

Bellevue’s charming Main Street will be transformed and energized with live music, silent auctions, and all kinds of special kids’ activities. For adults, the fun is enhanced with $30 dining passports that allow them to sample a wide variety of food and drinks offered at restaurants, bakeries and chocolate shops situated on Main Street.

Stores will join the fun with special sales and wine-tastings on site. Kids can get their own passport too, for $10.

The goal of the event is to raise money and educate the community about Children’s Response Center (CRC). CRC is a program of Harborview Medical Center, part of the UW Medicine health system. CRC provides services for children and teens who have experienced sexual assault or other traumatic events. The center also provides healing through critical services offered to family members.
