Arlington Center for the Arts is thrilled to be presenting Arlington Porchfest 2023 on Sunday, June 18, 2023! Since 2016 Arlington Porchfest has been uniting live music with community participation in a day-long celebration of the arts in Arlington. Porchfest is a grassroots music festival where bands play on front porches across town and people walk, bike or drive around to enjoy tons of free outdoor music, dancing, and art.
This year’s event will present over 200 performances and exhibits for the community to visit across over 100 porches in Arlington! From the classical stylings of the Arlington Philharmonic Orchestra to the rockin’ groove of hometown band Pretty Rotten, there is a musical genre and tempo for everyone!
The event runs from 12pm to 6pm with the “west zone” activated from 12pm to 4pm and the “east zone” activated from 2pm to 6pm. A full schedule of events can be found at www.acarts.org/arlington-porchfest and an event map will be available the week of June 12.
This year’s event in made possible in part by a grant from the Grants Committee of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture, a local agency supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
