Bristol Harbour Fest is committed to achieving high environmental and sustainability standards. From October 2023 a range of polluting single-use plastics will be banned in England. We will be implementing this ban across our event site in advance of the national ban later in the year. You must agree to not using any such single-use plastics whilst trading at Bristol Harbour Fest.
You will have a zone manager who will be on hand to assist you with load in, they will have your pass pack and deal with any issues that may arise across the weekend.
Power will be set up and turned on starting from 1pm Friday 14th July. Please note, the power team will be working their way round the site as quickly as possible, however, it is not guaranteed that you will have power fully fitted at any specific time.
