We hope that neighbors have all received this in your mailbox already, but if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet our summer edition is now online here!
Once again, on a single summer evening, Kingfield musicians will perform acoustic music outdoors at their respective homes or on a neighbor’s porch while neighbors stroll through the neighborhood enjoying the sounds. As of today we have a few more musicians interested in performing than we have sites to offer them so we are seeking a few more PorchFest Hosts.
Do Host Porches Need To Provide Anything besides a space?
We ask that Hosts treat your Musicians as your guests including: 1) allow musicians use of restrooms (no need to offer to the general public), 2) provide water or other light refreshments to the band, 3) offer them stools or chairs, and 4) set up a card table for the tip jar and any merchandise they may be selling. For the audience please also set up a few chairs or spread out some lawn blankets, and be sure to publicly pass or announce the band’s Tip Jar for them every 15-20 minutes. We also ask for a head count of audience members every 30 minutes.
How do I register to be considered as a PorchFest Host Site?
If you haven’t yet received your mailed copy of the Kingfield News’ spring edition, you can read it here. It is packed full of information on a variety of neighborhood activities in the coming months including gardening, outdoor oven, and music events including Kingfield PorchFest!
There are open positions on 15 City of Minneapolis boards and commissions this spring. Boards and commissions provide valuable insights, help shape key policy decisions and provide community-based input on the administration of City services.
What kinds of issues to City boards and commissions focus on? Aging, accessibility, bicycles, capital improvements, racial equity, neighborhood engagement, public health, housing and workforce development, to name a few.
