Porchfests are events where various neighborhoods setup porches and bands for afternoons of music! Audiences can stroll from block to block, taking in the local sounds.
Porchfests got started in Ithaca NY, and they have a List of All Known Porchfests
Here are some in New England:
(Likely) New England 2023 Porchfests:
|July 9||Shelburne Falls|
|Aug 19||Jamaica Plain|
|Sep 16||Plum Island|
|Sep 23||West Concord|
Porchfest.info created and runs the websites for six of these events, and has consulted on several others.
Feel free to contact me ( kirkjerk at gmail dot com ) if you want your porchfest on this list, or if you'd be interesting in using yourneighborhood.porchfest.info as your site- here's a page on collaborating with me on setting up your own porchfest website.
Thanks to Robert B, Ike A, et al for help tracking area Porchfests!
