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 Mum Festival was refreshed and reloaded for the 2016 season. Thanks to the Bristol Exchange Club and Bristol All Heart Team, the Festival and Parade was the largest on record, with over 55,000 spectators over the 4 day event!
This is where you come in! We are respectfully approaching you to be one of the many great and necessary vendors who in total will create a memorable weekend for thousands of Mum Fest goers, encouraging those thousands to experience the many layers of festival offerings, including your own over a 4-day action packed weekend.
