Welcome to beautiful Bellingham, where "buy local" is a way of life. Small, locally owned businesses help our community thrive and stay connected. When you shop local, more of your money stays in our community, fueling local growth and prosperity for everyone. We invite you to explore a variety of nearby shops and restaurants downtown, just a short walk or bike ride from the Tune-Up festival. Cheers!
