Historic Bristol Borough’s award-winning street festivals are held the first Friday of the month, from 5pm to 8 pm, along our main street district (Mill & Radcliffe Streets). These family-friendly events are held RAIN OR SHINE and include:
AMUSEMENTS & ENTERTAINMENT (many free) that vary month to month;
CRAFT & ART exhibitions including interactive displays and demos;
SHOPS, MERCHANTS & VENDORS showcasing their wares for your shopping pleasure;
LIVE MUSIC from local bands;
ARTS & CRAFT ACTIVITIES for all ages;
FOOD & GOODIES from our fabulous eating establishments and specialty food vendors;
COMMUNITY ART PROJECT exclusively designed for everyone's participation;
Now entering our 5th season, the request to participate from vendors, businesses, and community organizations continues to increase as our audience grows month by month, year by year. In order to continue this success, we need YOUR help. Please consider:
The BBBA wants to provide an interesting, culturally-rich, and family-friendly experience for our visitors and a successful selling experience for our members, businesses, vendors and artists. Our intention is to accept a varied mix of vendors who sell unique, quality products. We are especially interested in hand-made, crafted,
and/or upcycled items that cannot typically be found in usual shopping venues.
VENDOR APPLICATIONS CAN BE FOUND HERE.
FOOD TRUCK/STAND APPLICATIONS CAN BE FOUND HERE.
(*Must be paid in full by April 15.)
Organized to highlight our members and Main Street District, vendors who are in direct competition with any of those businesses may be prohibited from participating. Exclusivity is not guaranteed. However, every effort will be made to prevent an overabundance of similar products or services. The BBBA reserves the right to deny the sale or give-away of any particular item and/or service or the participation of a vendor for any reason.

The vendor must be a 501(c)3 organization and be able to provide proof of its status upon request. Non-profit vendors may give away items or sell items if used as a fundraiser for the organization.
