The Exchange Club of Bristol is the producer of the Mum Festival.
The Exchange Club of Bristol
The Exchange Club of Bristol is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization made up of men and women working together to make our community a better place to live through programs of service in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities, and our national project, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
We’re part of The National Exchange Club – a service organization with 700 clubs and more than 21,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico – which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Founded in 1911 in Detroit by businessmen who wanted to “exchange” ideas on making their community better, Exchange Club volunteer efforts have supported the needs of the country and of local communities for a century, making it the country’s oldest American service organization operating exclusively in this country.
The Bristol Mum Festival is an annual festival which includes the Mum Parade. The Mum Festival is celebrated during the third full week of September. The festival celebrates chrysanthemums, formerly a major product of the town, and was first held on Sunday, October 7, 1962. Opening ceremonies kicked off the celebration, now known as the Bristol Mum Festival.
One of the most rewarding things about the Mum Festival is that people from all backgrounds and interests have an opportunity to combine efforts. The Bristol area is filled with talent and creativity and its residents are enjoying an opportunity to display it. The ultimate success of the festival is provided by the delight, enjoyment and excitement experienced by the thousands who attend the events that combine to become the Bristol Mum Festival.
