What is JP Porchest?

Many of you came to JP Porchfest last July, but did you know that there are 20 Porchfests in towns and cities around the country? Ithaca had the first porchfest, but there are porchfests in Somerville, Buffalo, New York and Napa Valley, just to name a few. Porchfests are one-day musical events where musicians play on porches all around a neighborhood. As many of you know, the first annual JP Porchfest had 65 bands/musicians performing on 35 porches (and yards and driveways). And over 7,000 people came to wander the neighborhood and enjoy the music! We plan to make JP Porchfest an annual tradition, and this coming year we'll be adding dance, theatre, spoken word, circus arts and more!

We're also working on a short documentary about our first year. It will be debuted at Boston's 1st Night at 7:30 p.m. at Hynes Auditorium... and we will have an official JP premier later this winter.

Stay tuned for more updates and for our official "Call for Artists", coming in March!

Here's the video we produced for our Kickstarter campaign, if you'd like to get a taste of JP Porchfest before the documentary is released.­projects/­1420850438/­jamaica-­plain-­porchfest-­2015
