Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is JP Porchfest?

    • August 24, 2024 from roughly 12-6 pm​.

  • When can I sign up?

    • Stay tuned for Porchfest 2024 updates!

  • Will artists be paid this year?

    • Artists who sign up to perform will not be paid this year. We piloted a stipend payment format for artists in 2021 and are still looking into a model that will allow us to pay artists a fair wage and find enough sponsorship that we can sustainably pay every artist who signs up.​

  • Do I need to live in JP to perform?

    • No! We will match you to a porch in Jamaica Plain.​

  • What if I want to perform on a specific porch/want a specific performer on my porch?

    • There will be a place on your signup form to indicate if you have any preferences for where you perform or who will perform on your porch.​

  • I want to contribute financially as an individual or as an organizational sponsor, what should I do?

  • Why are there no performances scheduled from 3-4 pm during the festival?

    • Starting in 2022 we implemented an initiative called Community Hour. From the hours of 3-4 pm, all performances shut down except for at our 3 main stages. At each main stage we will feature a different participatory art experience ranging from dance classes, visual art, circle singing, and more! Stay tuned to find out what this year's Community Hour activities will be!​
