The Bristol Harbormaster’s Office and local fishing community are teaming up, once again, to host the 6th Annual Bristol Harbor Festival & Blessing of the Fleet. The event will kick off at Rockwell Park on Thames Street in historic Bristol, RI at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 10, 2019 and consists of a full day of activities, including:

  •      Blessing of the Fleet,
  •      Home Chef "Stuffie" Competition,
  •      Live Music,
  •      Tours of Fishing Vessels,
  •      And, the highlight - a traditional native Littleneck Boil. 

Below is the Schedule of Events:


Tickets for the littleneck boil are $25.00 per person. There is also an option for a steak dinner in lieu of the littleneck boil for $25 per person. Each ticket sold will include a free hot dog dinner for children. There will also be a cash raw bar as well as beer & wine. Tickets can be purchased online, at the Bristol Harbormaster’s Office and through Festival Committee members in advance. Guests will need to bring their ticket or receipt to the festival's check-in table.


As a result of our prior year's generous sponsors, the committee sponsored several Bristol children to Save the Bay's camp at the Bristol Maritime Center, as well as designated proceeds to promote and memorialize Bristol’s fishing history and industry. This year, the proceeds will go towards creating a cleaner and healthier Bristol Harbor.


In addition to raising funds, the mission of the Bristol Harbor Festival is to promote use of the waterfront and to strengthen ties between the Bristol Harbormaster’s Office, the local fishing community and those who choose to explore Bristol by land or by sea.  


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