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:
New England 2024 Porchfests:(Undated order is based on 2023 events, with dates
filled in as they are confirmed for this year...)
|Ashland & Hopkinton
Porchfest.info created and runs the websites for nine of these events (Medford, Fenway, JP, Melrose, Newton, Belmont, Dedham, Natick, Ashland/Hopkinton) and has consulted on several others, most notably creating the Somerville main map page. The core websites handle online signup, provide advanced scheduling tools for admins, and host the resulting map and schedule sites in a robust, scalable way to handle the crush of event-day traffic, and include abilities for the generation of print materials.
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.
