JP Centre/South Main Streets is launching StriveOn, an app that will make exploring the neighborhood more mobile-friendly and interactive. We are kicking off with a Launch Party on Saturday, September 29, 2018, from 12noon to 4pm, on the lawn of First Baptist Church, 633 Centre Street. Stop by our tent for fun, games, food trucks, prizes, and more! Get to know the app with our Scavenger Hunt – use the app to follow the map and answer questions to earn points for prizes! Users can download the app on both Apple and Android devices for free.
Join Us Saturday, September 29, 2018
12 PM to 4 PM
on the lawn of First Baptist Church
633 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain
In particular, StriveOn will be used to supplement the First Thursdays ArtWalk. The innovative features of the app will allow us to highlight special offerings and events, provide community-wide notifications to users, and utilize geofencing marketing – your cellphone will ping when you walk by selected locations! Our First Thursdays ArtWalk has been a tradition in Jamaica Plain for over 12 years, and the StriveOn app will update the ArtWalk with mobile technology.
This event and the StriveOn app are made possible by a generous grant from the Boston Main Streets Foundation.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
Not-for-profits post their events for free.
We ask businesses to pay $5 per event, but waive that fee as a benefit for advertisers.
We examine all submissions after they go live. Here’s the form to add your event. Please be sure to include contact information so we can reach you in case there’s a problem!
Please go ahead and submit your event — if you are a business, we will be in touch about your $5 fee. Or you can go ahead and pay your $5 fee via PayPal.
