Saturday, June 16th, from 12-4pm. Collaborating together on a community event for the first time, The Fenway Alliance, the Fenway Civic Association, and the Fenway Community Development Corporation are pleased to announce Fenway Porchfest, the first grass roots music festival of its kind to take place in the Fenway neighborhood.
“In a historic first, the Fenway CDC is thrilled to collaborate with Fenway Civic and Fenway Alliance to bring Porchfest to our community this June. We look forward to welcoming old friends and meeting new neighbors as we enjoy an afternoon of music throughout the Fenway,” enthused Leah Camhi, Executive Director of the Fenway Community Development Corporation.
Karen Wolff, chair of Arts and Culture for Fenway Civic added: "We're delighted to work with the neighborhood to strengthen connections through a celebration of music and the arts and to showcase our community's talents."
“The Fenway Cultural District may not have a tremendous amount of traditional porches, but we certainly have an abundance of all types of music and talented musicians. And, we’re welcoming newcomers to the mix in this community-based event,” explained Kelly Brilliant, executive director of The Fenway Alliance.

What is a Porchfest?
A Porchfest is an afternoon of free music performed outside of people’s homes and in other public spaces. Over 100 cities across the country hold Porchfests. All musicians- professionals, amateurs, and everything in between- perform voluntarily at a designated time and location. Attendees stroll from venue to venue, in order to hear the music of their choice.
When is Fenway Porchfest?
Saturday, June 16th from 12-4pm.
Where will this take place?
