Border Bash, a free summer concert series held annually, is back for another amazing season starting June 7, 2024! Hosted by Believe in Bristol, Border Bash is about fun, family, great music, and creating memories to last a lifetime.

 

This year, Border Bash celebrates its 24th Anniversary on State Street!  The series includes children’s activities, local arts and crafts vendors, and food trucks, in addition to live music and much more.  All the events will rotate along State Street this year, with the Star-Spangled July 4th Border Bash held in Anderson Park.
