Merry Christmas from Believe in Bristol

Merry Christmas from Believe in Bristol! Please remember us for your year-end contributions this holiday season! Believe in Bristol is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization composed of dedicated citizens, business owners, government officials and other friends of Bristol who recognize the role a vital downtown plays in preserving and furthering our community’s identity, spirit and economy. As a certified Main Street organization, we work hard to organize broad-based community support and advocacy for our downtown, promote all that our downtown has to offer, preserve and restore the area's classic architectural design, and increase commercial potential through economic restructuring.

Historic Downtown Bristol has more to offer every day – more activities, more shops, more homes, more offices, and more life. But Believe in Bristol needs your support to help us continue our revitalization efforts and make our downtown an even better place to live, work, shop and play! It's thanks to people like you that we have made the great strides that we have in recent years.
As much as has been accomplished through the efforts of Believe in Bristol and our partners, there is still much to do and a huge amount of potential that remains to be tapped! By donating to, volunteering with, and becoming a member of Believe in Bristol, you can be an active part of Bristol's success story.

Take a Growler Home for the Holidays

Twas two days before Christmas, when all through Downtown not a creature was stirring, not even a beaver; the stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that a growler would soon be there!

There are a number of “only in Downtown Bristol” items that have been showcased and purchased, but now it is time to sit back and be merry with your loved ones. Make that time extra special by bringing home a growler from one of our Downtown breweries! Bristol Brewery and Studio Brew have large selection of brews to choose from, something for everyone!

Merry Christmas, Bristol, and thank you for continuously supporting our downtown merchants!
