On July 7, 2012 at McLevy Green in Bridgeport will be the Bridgeport Arts Fest. This event is so massive that we aren’t even sure how to describe what will happen there. We’ll try, though: live music, art, performers, activities like a homebrewing demo and seaside bike tour…and tons more. Check out more at the end of this post and more on their site.
With hundreds of reasons to go, it’s gonna take some dinero to sponsor this awesomeness. Well, that’s where the Bridgeport Arts Fest Clambake comes along. Check it out Friday, 6/15, from 7-10 pm at Gallery 305K on 305 Knowlton Street in Bridgeport. When you buy a ticket, you get dinner, a drink, get to listen to live entertainment, and you get a chance to win 1 of 5 pieces of art that have been donated by Bridgeport Arts Fest artists. But wait, there’s more…there will be door prizes, too! Food is sponsored by Bridgeport Shellfish and Seafood, Barnum Publick House, One of a Kind Catering, Sweet Magnolia Catering, and a homegrown green salad by Cook and Grow. Wine will be provided by Barefoot. You must be 21 or older, there’s no smoking, and it’s dog-friendly.
Here are the costs:
At the door: $30 for one, $50 for two
