About this event

The Bristol Harbormaster’s Office and local fishing community are once again teaming up to host the annual Bristol Harbor Festival & Blessing of the Fleet. The event will be held at Rockwell Park on Thames Street in historic Bristol, RI on Saturday, August 13, 2022 and features a full day of activities, including:

- Blessing of the Fleet at 1:30 pm

- Stuffie Competition at 2:00 pm

- Live Music throughout the day

- Raw Bar, Chowder & Stuffies, Beer & Wine Cash Bar

- And, the highlight - a traditional native Littleneck Boil or optional Steak Dinner from 5-7:00 pm

Tickets for the Littleneck Boil are $30 per person. An optional steak dinner is available in lieu of the Littleneck Boil. Children receive a free hot dog with purchase of a ticket. Guests will need to bring their ticket or receipt to the festival's check-in table.

The Bristol Harbor Festival is a fun, family event that promotes use of the waterfront and strengthens ties between the Bristol Harbormaster’s Office, the local fishing community and those who choose to explore Bristol by land or by sea. Funds raised from the Bristol Harbor Festival & Blessing of the Fleet will be used for marine-related children's activities.

The Bristol Harbor Festival has become a much anticipated signature event for the Town of Bristol.  Various levels of sponsorship are available. Please visit our website or contact Bristol Harbormaster Gregg Marsili at 401-253-1700;

We look forward to hosting you!
