Westhaven Porchfests

On the road van


Westhaven Porchfest has exceeded our expectations in every regard. Mary and I had a wonderful time listening to great music and seeing some wonderful porches we'll share with you.



What's a porchfest you ask? A porchfest is a neighborhood event. Musicians of various genre's play on front porches as neighbors take to the streets, spread blankets or sit on lawn chairs and enjoy an afternoon outdoors.

Porchfests create a perfect environment for socializing and maintaining a sense of community.

Located a few miles from downtown Franklin,TN., the Westhaven neighborhood went all out. Streets were filled with golf carts, families rode bikes while many walked their neighborhood to enjoy the music and each other. Of course, Mary and I had fun photographing the porches!

Porchfest Front Porches

It wouldn't be a porchfest without the front porch. The Westhaven neighborhood is filled with curb appealing front porches - our dream come true! Each is beautifully decorated and landscaped to almost perfection. It is fun just walking the streets and taking in the sights! Here are a few of our favorites for you to enjoy too.

Porchfest Events

Porchfests began several years ago in Ithaca, NY. Since that time, porchfests have spread across the country and occur in cities like Cleveland (Larchmere neighborhood), Ohio; Belleville, Ontario (Canada); Napa, California; Somerville, Massachusetts; and now Franklin (Westhaven neighborhood), Tennessee.

We have compiled a list of Porchfests for you. Perhaps there is one in your area.
