Dates and Times


Presented by ColdIron Events and the Purple People Bridge, the free weekly summer party series — which includes live music, food trucks, beer, wine, and spirits — will run every Wednesday evening until August 4. Christian Moerlein, Little Kings, Braxton Brewery and Vive are all sponsors of this year’s series. Each night will have a theme, such as Single’s Night, 80’s Night, Dog Night, and much more. As in past years, the Party on the Purple will run from 6 to 10:30 p.m.

A portion of funds generated from food and drink sales during the weekly events go toward painting and maintaining the historic pedestrian-only bridge. The Newport Southbank Bridge Company, a nonprofit organization, is trying to raise $1 million to repaint the bridge and make other capital improvements.

The following is the theme and band schedule:

  • May 5 – Cinco De Mayo; Night Vinyl Countdown
  • May 12 – 80’s Night; The Whammies
  • May 19 – Single’s Night; DJ ETrayn
  • May 26 – Dog Night; Doghouse
