Boston Porchfest

Global Immersions Recruiting - Thursday, May 31, 2018


If you're a resident of the Boston area you may have seen the term "Porchfest" advertised online, in newspapers, or on flyers around town. But what is a "Porchfest"? Here is your definitive guide to what that term means and where to experience a "Porchfest" near the city.


A Porchfest is an annual music event held on porches outside neighborhood homes. During a Porchfest local musicians hold free concerts for members of the community who walk the streets listening to music and attending different performances. Often times local restaurants will be selling food on the streets or will offer special sales for the festival goers. Other festivals, such as the Porchfest in Jamaica Plain, offer more than live music. JP Porchfest has designated areas for comedy and dance routines, too. Several neighborhoods in the Boston area hold their own version of a Porchfest throughout the summer. If you like live music, want to support local artists, or are looking for a chance to meet others in your neighborhood, check out a Porchfest in your area.
