We’ve had gorillas and we’ve had Gromits, coming this summer a giant herd of unicorns (or ‘blessing’ as a group of unicorns is known) will descend upon the streets of Bristol. Join the colourful arts trail of decorated mythical unicorns with Unicornfest 2023 in celebration of Bristol’s 650th anniversary.
Taking place from the beginning of July to early September and each painted by an esteemed West Country artist, the magical trail features sixty supersized unicorns displayed across many iconic Bristol and south west locations, from the Clifton Suspension Bridge to Weston-super-Mare’s Grand Pier.
Unicorns have been a symbol of Bristol since the 17th century and can be seen on top of County Hall, on the SS Great Britain, along with many other locations across the city.
To compliment the trail, Unicornfest have lanched a fantastic App in conjunction. Available for Android and IOS devices, collect unicorns on the trail and fill your sticker book! Free to download - please consider making a donation to Leukaemia Care if you enjoy the app.
At the end of the trail, the unicorns will be rounded up and displayed at the Unicornfest Farewell Festival from 22-24 September for unicorn fans to say their final farewells before the bedazzling blessing heads off to the charity auction where they will be sold to raise funds for the national charity Leukaemia Care. Tickets are avaliable to purchase here.
Explore the Unicornfest shop in Cabot Circus which sells all things unicorn. You can purchase the Unicornfest trail map for £1
