Enjoy These Special Music EventsPorchfests are special music festivals held on front porches while neighbors and visitors stroll from porch to porch to enjoy the festivities! Our calendar lists events around the country so you can find one near you.
These special events for music can be great last minute family vacation ideas. Listen to local musicians and enjoy the sights of the surrounding area.
The first Porchfest was held in Ithaca NY in 2007 and the idea has happily spread to other neighborhoods across the country and into Canada with more being added every year.

What Porchfests Are AboutPorchfests are music events in local neighborhoods that take place on porches. Typically, local musicians take turns playing for specific amounts of time. In many cases, neighborhoods also have food carts and other entertainment venues for kids of all ages making it an ideal family event.
If you are lucky enough to live near one of these events, then take your kids, bring a lawn chair and a cooler for a fun day of socializing and enjoying wonderful music on the front porches of your neighborhood.
If you don't see one near you, it might be a good idea to organize one in your community. Have porches? Have musicians? Have families? Then you have what you need!

Meet the Amigos
Our dear friend and neighbor, Liz, belongs to a musical group, the Amigos, who play ukulele on the porch every Tuesday.
The four of them, Anita, Don, Carolyn and Liz, began playing together at the Fifty Forward group in Hermitage TN.
