About the event

On Friday, May 3, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m Downtown Bristol businesses will join together to host a food and beverage crawl celebrating Cinco de Mayo and Derby Weekend!

This collaboration of downtown businesses offers patrons the chance to gain after-hours access to merchants, taste a range of delicious sweets and cuisine, and enjoy beverage specials from several participating pubs and bars.

As with previous First Friday programming, participants are invited to stroll around Historic Downtown Bristol, stopping and enjoying all that our downtown has to offer! As guests stop in to each participating business, they will receive a sticker to place on their Crawl Card. Each guest with at least five stickers on their Crawl Card and those who use the hashtag #FirstFridaysBristol throughout the evening will be entered for a chance to win a Downtown Bristol prize pack! Crawl Cards can be turned in at any participating bar/restaurant (not retailers).

The Cinco de Derby Crawl will highlight several restaurants and bars with new items, limited time only items, and specials for the event, including:

~ Pins and Friends | New Southwest Egg Roll & Cream Cheese Churros with Ice Cream! ~ Cascade | $1 off Mexican Lagers on Draft! ~ The Corner | $4 Margarita Shooters & $8 Mint Juleps! ~ Blackbird Bakery | One Day Only! Kentucky Derby Pie ~ Machiavelli's | $7 select appetizers with derby attire & $6 Mint Juleps! ~ Axe and Ale House | Chorizo Scramble for brunch, Street Tacos & Nachos for dinner AND the unveiling of a new menu item: Guacamole! PLUS Modelo, Mint Julep, & Margarita Specials ~ Bistro on 6th | one night only Margarita Special! ~ The Rooftop at The Sessions Hotel | Frozen Strawberry Mint Julep & Jalapeño Mango Margarita!

BUT WAIT, First Friday fun doesn’t stop with the food and beverage crawl; several retail businesses will also be open late for after-hours shopping!
