Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair

Saturday, June 18th from 3:00pm-8:00pm

In its 7th year, the Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair celebrates Bristol, Vermont as a great place to shop, dine, live, work, and visit.

The event will feature live musical performances from eight well-known and loved regional bands, and host over 30 vendors from microbrews, wine, hard ciders, and spirits, to specialty foods, gifts, and crafts. There will also be activities for the kids, the SunCommon Bouncy House, the Vermont National Guard Climbing Wall, Photo Booth Planet’s VW Bus, and, of course, our own incredible restaurants and shops.

Why Pocock? Our town was originally founded as Pocock on June 26th, 1762, in honor of a distinguished English admiral. The town’s name was changed, for unknown reasons, to Bristol about 25 years later in 1789.

If you would like to be a vendor or sponsor at the street fair during Pocock Rocks!, please contact Ian Albinson at ian@bristolcore.org or (802) 760-6076.
