July Outdoor Summer Concerts in Bridgeport, Ct.

I consider myself fortunate to live really close to eclectic Bridgeport, Connecticut. The month of July in Bridgeport offers two weeks of outdoor music events I plan to attend.

1) The first event is Friday July 19th.  The Americanarama Music Festival will take place at the Bridgeport Bluefish stadium starting at 5:30 p.m.

The Americanarama Music Festival features Bob Dylan and His Band, Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham at our baseball park tour stop.

I’m considering taking the local Metro North train to this event which negates the hassle of driving and parking. I can just hop the train and be at the stadium in 16 minutes. It will only cost $5 round trip and some foot power 😉

2) The second event is the annual Gathering of the Vibes at Seaside Park, July 25-28. We haven’t decided what day we are going yet. The weather plays a factor in our choice as some years it gets blazing hot over there. I like that Gov’t Mule, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Roots, Phil Lesh and Friends are amongst this years acts.

We usually can buy tickets at the gate as locals so we’ll play this event by ear as we move closer to the Vibes weekend.

You know it was 95 degrees when the ballgame began at 6:05. I thought the guy in Santa Claus suit was insane at first. But the more the Christmas in July night unfolded at the Bridgeport Bluefish ballpark the cooler I felt.

It was a fun evening and we had a great time.

Our personal thanks to my brother-in-law Frank and my sister in-law Marian for the invitation. I also want to thank the Bluefish promotion team for a fun event. Thanks Citibank for the fireworks after the game.

Oh and the Bluefish won 6-4! Go Bluefish!
