A Local's Guide

Welcome to beautiful Bellingham, where "buy local" is a way of life. Small-scale, locally owned businesses create communities that are more prosperous, connected, and generate more tax revenue for our community. When we buy from independent, locally owned businesses, rather than national chains, a significantly greater portion of our money is then cycled back through our local economy. That's how we roll, and we invite you to explore a variety of nearby shops Downtown just a short walk (and bike) from the Tune-Up Festival. Explore through a local's eyes and experience our "Top Tune-Up Pick" recommendations. Enjoy!
