The third annual Jamaica Plain Porchfest will kick off tomorrow July 9 and feature 200 bands on more than 80 porches, according to a press release.
The festivities began at the CityPOP Egleston arts center at 11:30 a.m. and will run to 6 p.m. The Loring-Greenough House will host a 5-hour dance party, while the Eliot School will have a children’s social justice event called “Wee the People: Protestival.”
Other activities include theater performances at St. John’s Church and spoken word performances at the First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain.
“In these troubled times, being part of a strong community is even more important. We are thrilled to host a joyful arts-filled event that celebrates the talent and diversity of our community and strengthens our bonds across differences,” said Mindy Fried, co-producer of the festival, according to the press release.
