Welcome to the Pastime Foundation website!

This Bristol, RI civic group is dedicated to bringing the magic of the performing arts to the East Bay. Recharged and refocused, the Pastime Foundation is working to round out the entertainment and cultural offerings for the community. We think Bristol needs more films, comedy, dance, jazz, and puppetry.

Our goals are both to support and celebrate what’s already offered in the East Bay by working with performing-arts groups and presenters and to inspire audiences with exciting and original programming.

We have seen how the arts enrich our community and our economy. So we're giving our time and energy and reaching out to everyone who shares these interests to join us in this worthy effort.

We are proud to sponsor the Bristol Arts Roundtable, providing a forum for local performing-arts groups and individual presenters, to coordinate scheduling and work with them on projects of mutual interest. The Bristol Arts Roundtable was first convened in 2007. Participants include:

  • Blithewold
  • Bristol County Interfaith Choir
  • Bristol Parks & Recreation
  • Bristol Theatre Company
  • Community Concert Series at St. Michael's Church
  • Concerts on the Common
  • Linden Place
  • Mount Hope Farm
  • Roger Williams University
  • Pastime Theater Foundation
  • Stone Church Coffeehouse

The Bristol Pastime Theater Foundation invites local residents to join the foundation as board members or volunteer staff.  We’re always happy to accept new members and volunteers to work with us in supporting the performing arts in the East Bay.  Information is available from any of the foundation’s current board members and volunteers.
