PorchFest brings music and a Beer Garden to Squantum, June 24

Get ready for music and dancing in the streets on
Saturday, June 24! After the great success of last year, PorchFest Quincy is returning to Squantum from 4–8 PM, bringing bands to porches and driveways across our neighborhood. Festivities are rain or shine and extend from 1–8 PM across Quincy.

A new addition this year…you can grab some nosh at food trucks at the Wollaston Elementary Schoolyard, or a cold one at the Beer Garden in Squantum. Locations for these two sites are being added to the online map.

PorchFests are free, live music events held on front porches across a city. PorchFest music festivals bring local bands, singers, and instrumentalists together with neighbors to enjoy music of any genre. Music can range from country to pop, classical to reggae, and everything in between—blues, rock, jazz, Latino, R&B—anything goes! Performances are staggered throughout the afternoon so neighbors can walk from yard to yard enjoying each other and the great music.
