Sponsor the Fall Festival of the year…

OUR STORY:  The Mum Festival has been an epic fall festival in Bristol’s history. Once known as the Mum City, Bristol was famous for this colorful flower, and through the years proud Fall festivities were put on by residents for all in the region to enjoy! The Festival is Sponsored by the City of Bristol and Directed by the Greater Bristol Exchange Club. One of the premiere festivals in New England!

This is where you come in! In order to do the Festival justice, we are approaching you to be one of the many great and necessary sponsors to pull off the considerable size and scope of this effort. With you on board, we can create a memorable event for thousands of Mum Festival goers, encouraging thousands to experience the many layers of festival offerings over a 4-day action packed weekend. In a sponsorship role, this great event will provide your business or organization exposure to thousands of people, in addition to tens of thousands of impressions through our advertising and event efforts leading up to the big weekend. The 2016 Mum Festival and Parade drew well over 50,000 visitors!

All sponsorships will be tax deductible via 501(c) 3 non profit event partner, The Bristol Exchange Club.  If you are interested in sponsoring or would like more info please contact: Jason Fields: E: jgfields@att.net  P: 860.707.6286 

What: Over the course of the weekend the 2018 Mum Fest will feature dozens of vendors from area businesses, crafters, local producers, restaurants, food trucks, community organizations, non profits, and museums, in addition to games, children’s programming, adult beverages, fireworks on Friday, all-day live music and entertainment, a car show and so much more!

Where: The event will be held in downtown Bristol at Memorial Boulevard Theatre field and the surrounding area, where parking, including handicap parking, will be available too. Parking will also be available at Associated Spring, the Depot Square (former mall) lot, other municipal lots, and on-street, where available.

Join In!: We are offering you the unique chance to support this wonderful opportunity for our Bristol and Connecticut communities to gather, create memories, and contribute to Bristol’s positive efforts to become a destination. This exciting event reinforces the City and Chambers’ efforts to promote downtown as a destination, and we hope that it will encourage everyone to join in and help our region rise to new heights!

We hope you can join this effort to put on this amazing festival in the heart of our state for all to converge, and we thank you for your time and support in advance. There’s just one last thing we’d like to say, “Mum’s the Word”…

2023 Mum Festival Theme Announced!

It’s going to be FUN!!

“Mumma Mia, Here We Grow Again!”

Our Official Festival & Parade Theme Banner for 2023! Adorned with a beautiful memory of the historic Bristol Nursery” in the background, and three popular Chrysanthemum varieties. They were the largest growers in the region, and the reason the City of Bristol was dubbed “The Mum City”.

We are really excited about our theme this year, especially for all our community Float builders out there! We will have a special award for our “Best Theme” at the parade this year, so put your thinking caps on as it is going to be a fun time! We can only imagine the creative Floats this year!!

We will also be having two BINGOS this year, and our Mum Season of Events is shaping up nicely! Plans are underway, and it promises to be a great event, with awesome live bands! So get your grove on, and prepare for some fun! More information to follow! Please follow us on Facebook and this website for up-to-date happenings. Just enter your email address on the “Follow” icon at the bottom right of your computer screen.
