JP Centre/South Main Streets

Recognizing the importance of the arts to the Jamaica Plain community, JP Centre/South Main Streets hosts an event series known as First Thursday highlighting the work of area artists. Our goal is to combine art, music, and shopping.

Held on the First Thursday of each month, and now running throughout the calendar year, The stroll has grown a great deal in seven years and it is a favorite evening out for many of the residents and businesses. We work diligently to promote these events in surrounding neighborhoods in order to drive more foot traffic to the business district. These events encourage shopping locally and supporting local merchants.

The First Thursday program costs JP Centre/South Main Streets $5,000 each season. If 500 community residents each contribute $10 apiece, we can make this goal and keep First Thursday going strong! (And of course, if you can give more than $10, that's wonderful and very much appreciated.)

JP Centre/South Main Streets is an independent 501 c 3 non-profit and all contributions are fully tax deductible as provided by law. For questions about this program, or more information about Centre/South Main Streets or sponsorship opportunities, contact Randace Moore at
