Belmont will host its first Porchfest on September 8. Want to learn more? There’s a meet and greet at Belmont Books on Thursday evening, July 12th starting at 5 pm!
You may not know it, but Belmont is becoming the latest town to host its own “porchfest,” along with peer communities like Somerville, Arlington, Jamaica Plain and more. Porchfests are daylong celebrations of music and community, with impromptu concerts scattered around town on front lawns and, yes, porches.
Belmont’s Porchfest is scheduled for Saturday, September 8th and, already, there are 22 performances scheduled across 28 porches in town. The event already has the backing of Belmont Savings Bank and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The organization is looking to grow that number by the time September rolls around to give everyone in town the chance to experience great, live music.
If you’re interested in learning more, there’s a Meet & Greet with the Porchfest organizers tomorrow (Thursday) evening at 5PM at Belmont Books. Come by and learn about the event and get any questions answered about participating or just attending the first annual Belmont Porchfest!
As with any big event, Porchfest’s organizers are also looking for volunteers from the community to make the event a success.
