What's PorchFest?

Porchfest is an exciting event that brings 10,000 members of our community together for a day of fun and music. It's a celebration of local talent, showcasing local musicians playing on the porches of houses in the Griffith Avenue neighborhood. Each stage features numerous acts playing their own unique music, from rock to jazz to folk.

Neighbors come out to listen to the live music and meet new people in their community. Porchfests are a great opportunity for musicians to perform and for people to mingle with their neighbors. So grab your lawn chairs, come out. and enjoy the music!
