The Rent Party

In the spirit of the rent party tradition, which offered a DIY solution for families facing eviction in the 1920s while playing a major role in the historic development of jazz and blues music,
South Oakland Shelter presents: The Rent Party. 

Our 4th annual event will be held on Saturday, June 1st, 2019 at the former Stanley Kresge estate - renovated by Paddy Lynch - in the Arden Park-East Boston Edison Historic District. The event featured three stages of jazz curated by the top local music venues of the genre, a delicious strolling dinner and open bar, and special pre-party Arden Park estate tours for our sponsors.
