July at The Porch at 30th Street Station brings you the return of free weekly lunchtime performances, the unveiling of our new shade structure, post-work drinks three nights a week at the Pub, and of course a daily selection of food trucks. Please note: there will be no food trucks vending the week of July 4th (July 1st through July 5th). 

  • Thanks to a partnership with PECO, we are bringing back free, weekly lunchtime performances to The Porch! From July 9th through the end of September we'll be presenting an eclectic mix of music, dance and more to The Porch. The schedule for July will be:
    • Tuesday, July 9th at 12:30 pm: Emmanuel Ohemeng III and Perpetual Motion
      • Emmanuel Ohemeng III and Perpetual Motion is a Trap Jazz band consisting of great Philadelphia musicians. THeir goal is to express views and ideas about life and current events using the platform of music. 
    • Wednesday, July 17th at 12:30 pm: The Big Push
      • The Big Push has the form of a big band - twelve people: brass, saxes, rhythm and vocals - and the soul of seventy years of American jazz, blues and dance music.
    • Wednesday, July 24th at 12:30: The Lady Hoofers
      • The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble, Philadelphia's premiere women’s tap dance company, contributes to the revitalization of the city's tap community through performance of both original choreography and improvised works to preserve the tradition of tap dance while challenging the public’s perception of percussive dance.
    • Wednesday, July 31st at noon: West Philly Ballroom and Latin Dance Social Club
      • Garincha Hilaire and Meghan Gerry from West Philly Ballroom and Latin Dance will perform a salsa routine that will showcase the basics up through their most advanced levels. Following the performance, the dance instructors will hold a beginner group lesson.
