PSEG Supports Bridgeport’s Biggest Annual Festival

PSEG Supports Bridgeport’s Biggest Annual Festival

The annual Barnum Festival is the signature celebration of everything “Bridgeport.” As a partner in the community, PSEG is proud to support the Festival and is excited about next year!

The festival originated in 1948, to help support local businesses and honor world-renowned showman and city leader, P.T. Barnum. PSEG, who hosts a float in the festival, along with other sponsors support the grand festival to keep it going and growing every year.

The festival consists of the weekend-long “Barnum Palooza” featuring parades, concerts, fireworks, and other family-friendly festivities. Ringmaster Terry O’Connor, executive director of the Cardinal Shehan Center and the McGivney Community Center, stated that the emphasis of this year’s 69th annual festival is to promote and engage children in community events.

The festival supports Bridgeport’s children in their education, development and dreams which are all critical to the continued success of the Park City.
