FAQ

I don't get it...a Porch festival??

While we love porches and they certainly play a role in this event, we are not merely celebrating porches. Homeowners throughout the neighborhood have generously offered their porches as temporary stages for our local performers. Think of the neighborhood as the festival grounds and the various participating porches as different stages, each with a different lineup. This is a music festival in a community setting.

How do I find the right porch?

We will have a schedule posted on this website, as well as an interactive map to help you navigate the neighborhood during the event!

Why is it free? What's the catch?

No catch! The homeowners donate their porches, the organizers donate their time and energy, and the musicians donate their talents, all so we can have a lovely, music-filled afternoon of entertainment and camaraderie in the neighborhood!

Will the streets be closed off?

Nope, traffic will flow through the neighborhood as usual. We ask, however, that you take public transit or walk or bike to the neighborhood if possible to prevent a surplus of parked vehicles. If you do need to arrive in a car, please try to carpool and aim to park in a nearby city parking deck.

How will I get around?

By confining the event to a single neighborhood, it is extremely walkable! Bring your wagons to tote around the little ones, and mosey from one stage to the next throughout the afternoon. Bikes are a great way to zip from one stage to the next as well!

Will there be concessions?

Pack some snacks and picnic on the lawns!  At this point there are no plans for food trucks or concessions.  We will definitely update you if this changes!

So I did a good job staying hydrated, but now...

Say no more! There will be restrooms available at The FOLLOWING LOCATIONS:

Redeemer Presbyterian Church @ 9th and Wadsworth
Crooked Tree Arts Center @ 322 Sixth Street
Friends Meeting House @ 206 S. Oak
