Porchfests are events where various neighborhoods setup porches and bands for afternoons of music! Audiences can stroll from block to block, taking in the local sounds.

I'm the webmaster for the Jamaica Plain Porchfest, and the people I've worked with on that are excited about having different neighborhoods set up their own events.

Here are some porchfests I know about, mostly in the Boston area... feel free to contact me ( kirkjerk at gmail dot com ) if you want your porchfest on this list, or even if you'd be interesting in using yourneighborhood.porchfest.info as your site- I'm even willing to help advise on getting your online presence going...
