The 2nd Annual JP Local First Fair will be at the Loring-Greenough House on Thursday, June 21st from 3:30 pm until dark.

The JP Local First Fair is a great way to support many of our JP businesses, or get to know new ones. There will be a wide array of businesses with focuses on: bicycling, canines, real estate, financial planning, theater, helping the elderly, acupuncture, music, dance, legal services and more.

This year's JP Local First Fair will feature live music from Back Bay Drumming and Evan of Music at the Blissful.

As per usual on Thursday nights during the summer there will be food trucks, and this week's offerings include: Bon Me, Melt, Kebabish, and Eloti.

Plus the winners of the #JPLocalFirst Love Your Local contest will be announced. The winner will receive $500 to spend at local Jamaica Plain businesses. JP Local First will also be giving away prizes from Jamaica Plain Local First members when people spin the wheel of (JP Local First) fortune.
