Bristol Borough First Fridays on the Delaware

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.



(*Must be paid in full by April 15.)

Additional Vendor Info

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.


Vendor: $50 per event or $200 for all 5 events ($40 each) if paid in full by April 15;

Non-profit*: $25 per event (Not eligible for further discounts. Only a limited number of non-profits will be permitted at each event and applications will be reviewed first come, first serve.) *Non-profit vendor is one that plans to participate in Event as a method to market its organization. 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. Paying food, craft and novelty vendors will take priority in providing items for sale.
