Bridgeport’s Downtown Thursdays line-up announced

Live music is returning to McLevy Green this summer.

Downtown Thursdays, Bridgeport’s free annual concert series, kicks off on Thursday, June 6 and continues every Thursday — with the exception of July 4 — until Aug. 29. Concerts start at 6 p.m.

The 12-week series brings a mix of rock, reggae, funk and folk acts from across the Tri-State area to Downtown Bridgeport, creating a carnivalesque atmosphere that lures families and young professionals alike.

“Downtown Thursdays brings top local acts from a variety of musical genres to the heart of our walkable, vibrant downtown neighborhood in historic McLevy Green,” Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch said in a statement. “I invite Bridgeport residents and visitors from our neighboring towns to check out a concert this summer, have dinner at one of our excellent restaurants and enjoy a Thursday evening in downtown.”

Check out the line-up, below:

  • June 20 – Natural Wonder (Bridgeport/Stevie Wonder covers); The Chords
  • July 11 – Special guest to be announced…
  • Aug. 29 – Lovewhip (Boston/disco pop, world rock)
