Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair

A drone view of the Pocock Rocks festival in 2019

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 seven 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, 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.

Money raised from the Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair supports the community-building efforts of Bristol CORE.


The 11th annual event is on Saturday, June 15th, 2019 from 3:00pm-8:00pm.
