Old City Street Party


Event: Old City Street Party
Date: Sunday June 23rd 2019
Time: 11am to 5pm
Where: Corn Street, Bristol City Centre.
Entry: Free to all.

The Bristol City Centre BID invites you to join the businesses of the Old City for a street party on the final day of Bristol Food Connections. On the 23rd June from 11am-5pm, Corn Street will come alive with DJs spinning family-friendly tunes, theatrical storytelling, kids’ crafts and face painting.  

Traders on Corn Street will be selling plenty of tasty food and drink, such as takeaway burgers and milkshakes from Honest Burger; paella cooked alfresco from Pata Negra with sangrias to wash it down with; burgers, ribs and beers from The Ox.  The Crown will be running a real ale bar for anyone who fancies a proper pint – all of which can be enjoyed in our specially created seating areas.

Kids (and big kids) will be kept entertained throughout the day with several activities. Why don’t they join in with stories and garden games with our very own Barry Burrows and Rose Busche? Or make their own seed packs and marker sticks which they can take home to watch grow. Perhaps they want to go on an adventure as our time travellers dig up history within the Old City on the Walled City tour.

On top of all of this, joining us for the day is international circus performer Hobbit, who specialises in acrobatics and the hula hoop.  Enjoy a good old fashioned dance with local DJs playing soulful Sunday tunes and let’s not forget face painting- because it’s not a street party if there isn’t a face painter!

Keep an eye out for our street performers who will be handing out golden envelopes to a lucky few. These will contain special offers and prizes from local businesses such as 25% off food at Vodka Revolutions, vouchers from Stanfords, have a meal on us cards from Honest Burger.  Vouchers for both The Ox and Pata Negra and even a spa day for two from The Harbour Hotel and Spa.

This event is free and the road will be closed for full roaming fun so – see you there.
