2nd Annual Cultural District Festival

June 8 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Arts and Culture Commission is pleased to present the 2nd Annual Cultural District Festival on Saturday, June 8, from 12-3PM at Federal Hill Green. The goal of the Cultural District Festival is to shine a light on local businesses and eateries, feature artists, and increase Bristolโ€™s sense of community beyond the dayโ€™s festivities.

We’ll have artisan vendors, interactive crafts, community involved activities and original art and music playing throughout the day! Delicious food trucks will be on sight as well. After your visit at the festival, we encourage a stroll through the Cultural District to visit the many businesses, including the library, restaurants, historical landmarks, salons, art and music shops, museums and more!
