Vaughan Mall Summer Series

Would you or your group like to perform and entertain in the PS21 VAUGHAN MALL GREEN Summer Series? We’re looking for musical acts, games, exercise or meditation classes, dancing, juggling, game tourneys, theater demos and more!

Performance slots are slated for Saturday afternoons, and the two slots range from 45 min to 2 hours. Performers will not be paid, however you may accept donations during the performance.

Spread the word! We ask that you please fill out this brief online form to request a slot in the schedule. Contact Ellie at with any questions.

NOTE: At this point, just one 45-minute slot beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Aug. 12 remains unfilled!

** Fine Print

Vaughan Mall has a small stage that is available to organizations seeking to promote the arts to schedule performances. Approval by the City Council is required for use of this stage, but amplification and drums may be permitted from time to time at that location under certain conditions. (PS21 is requesting City Council approval.) Permits are not required for performances that do not require tables, chairs and other stationary props. Portsmouth does not directly regulate sidewalk performers such as magicians, musicians, dancers and mimes. Donations may be accepted.  See the City’s Sidewalk Performer Guidelines for complete details.

If you are interested in offering items for sale, you are required to obtain a vending permit from the City of Portsmouth (click here). If your act requires amplification, sound equipment must be provided.
