What is Porchfest?

Porchfest is a free, walkable music festival where front porches become musical stages for one magical afternoon.

Music, food & fun!

Wander around and catch music from Set 1 (1:00–2:30 PM) and Set 2 (3:30–5:00 PM) or post up in a camp chair at the Main Stage (1:00–5:00 PM) in the Unity of South Sound Church parking lot for ongoing music & food trucks.

Walk, bike or roll in the community Parade, leaving from the Ferry St Community Garden at 2:30 PM.
