How come we never did this before? The Bridgeport Arts Fest is coming up quick — Saturday, July 17 — and for artists this is an inexpensive vehicle for getting positioned in the middle of a fun event at McLevy Green.
The Bridgeport Arts Fest is a one-day gathering of artists, artisans, craft-makers and musicians, with food from area restaurants and craft-brewed and home-brewed beer Sounds like a cool alternative to the more traditional old-timey fairs the other towns often have.
Neighborhood Studios of Fairfield County (formerly MACH) will bring children’s art activities and its youth jazz ensemble. The Ralphola Taylor Community Center’s youth African dance ensemble will perform. And Connecticut favorites Saint Bernadette and Cosmic Jibaros will also rock the green.
The Bridgeport Arts Fest is co-sponsored by the city, the Downtown Special Services District and local businesses.
The fee for a booth site is $25. There are no other fees but if you want a tent the city will help you with a discount rate of $125.
