Who Should Come? Everyone! PorchFest is a family-friendly event open to the community featuring musicians from a wide variety of genres. There’s something for everyone, including activities for kids.
What to Bring? You’ll be “camping out” in neighborhood front lawns for 30-40 minutes at a time, so bring chairs or a blanket to sit on. If you want to see as many bands as possible, a bike is a great idea.
What to Eat & Drink? Larchmere Blvd. and Shaker Square have many restaurants to choose from. There will also be vendors and a food court for additional food options. You’re welcome to bring food, but please pick up any trash you may create.
Where to Go for Info? Be sure to pick up a printed schedule and map for the day, buy t-shirts and learn about the neighborhood at our info tent located at the corner of E 127th Street and Larchmere. Restrooms available here.
Volunteer at PorchFest
How can I help? PorchFest would love for you to get involved! You can sign up to volunteer the day of the event or help plan the event by joining a committee.
Perform at PorchFest
Can I play at Larchmere PorchFest? PorchFest is run by volunteers and we consider as many bands as we are capable of reviewing. Our goal is to feature a broad range of musical genres and artists at a local level. At this time we are not accepting requests to perform at the festival.
Please Be Respectful
We ask that all who attend PorchFest are respectful to one another.
