The Bristol Festival of Nature is a 2 day long free event held in June in Bristol, England, United Kingdom, featuring hundreds of events, including lectures, tours and film screenings on subjects of science, natural history and the environment.

The event, run by the Bristol Natural History Consortium, principally takes place at At-Bristol, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Bristol Zoo, the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, though there are many other events around the city, such as at Blaise Castle estate and Leigh Woods.

Notable past speakers include broadcasters David Attenborough and David Bellamy, geneticist Steve Jones and primatologist Jane Goodall.

The Bristol Natural History Consortium also organises 'Communicate', a conference of scientists, environmentalists, broadcasters and journalists, who meet to discuss the issue of communicating conservation issues to the public.
