PorchFest Somerville 2022 will take place on Sat. May 14th (Rain Date the 15th) from 12-6pm.
PorchFest during Spring is BACK! PorchFest is a decentralized music festival. Perhaps you’ve sat on your porch and overheard a neighbor strumming guitar on another porch? Porchfest takes this idea and multiplies it. This is not a festival per se but rather a community event where Somervillians share their love of playing and listening to music. Think of Somerville Open Studios, which is for visual artists, but for music.
Similar to prior years and to ensure guests can move orderly through the city and view the music, we have created a performance schedule:
12-2pm: West (West of Willow Ave)
2-4pm: Central (from Willow Ave to Central St)
4-6pm: East (East of Central St)
**KEEP PORCHFEST ALIVE!
Please respect neighboring property; NO public drinking; stay on sidewalks, not in roadway. We strive for this to be a family friendly event, please help us keep it that way.
If you are in need of a public restroom we will place portajohns around the city. Link will be up for the event day.
In late April we will announce a charity for this year's PorchFest in addition to encouraging you to support the local bands participating; see their own ways to support them on their pages and on the day of-- fill those tip jars.
