Get ready to Party on the Purple at the Purple People Bridge on Wednesdays; here’s the May schedule

For the third consecutive year, the “Party on the Purple” series has returned to the Purple People Bridge.

The free weekly summer party series – which includes live music, food trucks, beer, wine, and spirits – will run throughout summer until August, 7.

New this year are themed parties, such as Kentucky Derby Night, 80’s Night, Dog Night, and much more. As in past years, the Party on the Purple will run from 6-11 p.m. on Wednesday nights.

To find the band schedule and food trucks for the first nine Parties on the Purple click here.

The Newport Southbank Bridge Company, a nonprofit that owns the bridge, launched its first GoFundMe campaign last month to raise money to paint and maintain the bridge. To contribute to the Purple People Bridge GoFundMe Campaign click here.
