Join us on Saturday, October 20, 2012. Stroll the downtown blocks surrounding McLevy Green. View classic and custom autos complemented by some of the city’s most architecturally and historically important buildings: the Barnum Museum, the Beaux Art Neo Classical Mechanics and Farmers, the chocolate colored Greek temple-like McLevy Hall, and the contemporary People’s United Bank, designed by Richard Meier.

Enjoy a variety of music, including Rockabilly and Italian favorites, food and Cannoli. Cannolis? Bridgeport claims to have some of the best cannoli makers in the region and a vibrant Italian American community and heritage. We decided to give our car show a distinction from others by giving it an Italian flavor and celebrating the Italian American community in Bridgeport. Join us on McLevy Green to view fine cars, enjoy Italian American favorites: cannoli from Luigi’s bakery, sausage and peppers from Tiago’s, Italian Cajun cuisine from TwoBoots. and others. Try your hand at Bocce ball on McLevy Green led by Leonard Paoletta, former Mayor of Bridgeport and leader in the Italian American community.
