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!
