Bridgeport’s new amphitheater gained a new name from a new official sponsor, an opening date and, given the drop in the state’s COVID-19 positivity rate, fresh hope of getting some concertgoers this year in the 5,700-seat venue formerly known as The Ballpark at Harbor Yard.
“The Hartford HealthCare Amphitheater is, in every way, a sign of hope for the future,” said Jeffrey Flaks, Hartford HealthCare President and CEO. “In addition to concerts, the new location will host many community health events, festivals, and other regional events when it is safe enough to do so. It is another example of Hartford HealthCare’s continued investment in our communities — improving quality of life, improving access to world-class healthcare and continuing to drive economic development and vitality. This is the kind of investment that will make Bridgeport a true destination.”
