Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair

August 17, 2024 | 3:00-8:00 pm | Main Street, Bristol

The Pocock Rocks Music Festival & Street Fair celebrates everything that makes Bristol and Vermont great!

Each year, we bring together regional music performers and bands, local microbrews, wine, and spirits, specialty food providers, artisans and crafters. There will be activities for the kids and fun for the whole family.

Why “Pocock”? Bristol 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.
