Bridgeport Arts Festival

Bridgeport Arts Festival (Promotional Photo / June 6, 2012)

Last year, the Bridgeport Arts Fest really hit its stride. Thousands roamed the streets of downtown Bridgeport taking in the sounds of local bands, eating a variety of locally-made foods and buying art directly from its creators, many of whom live and/or work down the street in the Read's Artspace. Or the American Fabrics building. Or Gallery 305K. The days of cracking jokes at Bridgeport are officially over. (And I've cracked quite a few myself, though as a Bridgeport-native I can do that.) If you're an artist in Southwestern Connecticut, Bridgeport is where you'll find the resources you need. And you can see for yourself what all those artists-in-the-know have been up to all year. The exact lineup is still being solidified, but head to to get the very latest info.
