Hello Somerville. The Arts Council’s weekend of three events are on.

Hopefully the weather gods are thinking of us. We hope the rain will stop around 12 noon tomorrow so we can get in our three events. Please come out.


Saturday, May 17 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Over 120 musicians and bands throughout Somerville will celebrate and utilize an underused public venue: The Porch. Acts—ranging from bollywood funk, cosmic americana, killer blues, Moroccan, Balkan, gospel, American space rock and clawhammer banjo—will serenade passersby from porches throughout Somerville.

Map and band listing here.

Dancing in the Streets
For a second year the Arts Council is pleased to produce a 8-troupe city-wide dance festival. Come out, it's all free.
Check out all of our local and regional talent in squares, parks, lots across the city in May and June. For a full listing go here:

Starting the series this weekend includes two troupes:
