2022 Mum Festival Theme Announced

It’s going to be FUN!!

“Celebrating 60 Years of Flower Power”

Our Official Festival & Parade Theme Banner for 2022! 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 happy to announce our Mum Festival Theme for 2022! “Celebrating 60 Years of Flower Power” We want this to be a very special event as we plan our 60th Mum Festival and Parade this year. As most of you know, we had to cancel our beloved Mum Festival in 2020 due to the pandemic. Then we were back last year with a slightly reduced schedule, as restriction were being lifted. As our Country, State and City return to some normalcy, we are moving forward with our full blown Mum Festival for 2022! 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 a 60th Birthday Celebration, which replaces this year’s Mum Festival Gala. Plans are underway, and it promises to be a great event, with an awesome live band! 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.

Volunteers Needed for the 2022 Festival!

We are in great need of volunteers for the Mum Festival! As most of you know, this historic event almost ended in 2015. Thanks to a public outcry, and the Exchange Club of Bristol CT stepping up, our city’s marquee event was saved. The City of Bristol has also provided an annual grant to ensure that the Mum Festival is supported. This is where you come in! We need your support on our Mum Festival Committee to keep this event going. Whether it is serving on our All Volunteer Committee, or just picking an event to help out on during the Festival, is so critical to the Festival’s survival. As many of our committee members will tell you, it’s a lot of fun, especially giving back to your community.

PLEASE consider helping out by being a Mum Festival Volunteer, by contacting us at MumFestivalBristol@gmail.com

Mum Festival Parade Route

2021 MUM PARADE ROUTE:

Please note, due to construction projects on Memorial Boulevard, the Mum Festival Parade Route will be changed.  Please see the new Parade Route in the print below.  

The Parade will officially end on North Main Street just past City Hall.  Our Grand Reviewing Stand location will be on Main Street in front of Barnes Group.  Spectators should avoid North Main Street past City Hall, as that is the official end of the performing route.  All units will disperse as they travel onto North Main Street.   

2020 Parade Route - Plan D

The Parade will end on North Main Street, just past City Hall.  For spectators, the parade will not continue down North Main as it did in the past.
