Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Members of the Malden community are invited to a fundraiser for Malden PorchFest on Wednesday, March 23 starting at 6 p.m. at Hugh O’Neill’s Restaurant & Pub (45 Pleasant St. in Malden Center). Malden PorchFest is a community-wide celebration of the arts that will be held for the first time this year on Saturday, June 11 all across the city. Local musicians and spoken word artists will perform on porches, in parks and block parties across the city all afternoon, providing free music to residents in family-friendly, outdoor settings.

  PorchFest is organized and run entirely by volunteers, and it is funded in part by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council. Additional funds are needed to pay performers, print maps and signs, create t-shirts and make the daylong festival a success.

  Hugh O’Neill’s will donate 15% of any dine-in or take-out order that evening to PorchFest, and the organizers will be on hand to meet and greet anyone who has questions about the event or wants to get involved. Volunteers for the event are still needed, including porch hosts and performing acts! There will also be a raffle with prizes that include gift cards to Boda Borg, El Potro Mexican Bar and Grill, Evviva Trattoria, 110 Grill, John Brewer’s Tavern, Exchange Street Bistro, Malden Center Fine Wines, LUVA Hair & Day Spa and The Gallery@57.
