Get your porches ready, people, because Porchfest is making a grand return to West Philly this summer on Saturday, June 3rd.

Porchfest organizer, Owen Lyman-Schmidt, first learned about the event concept when he accidentally took part in one in Massachusetts (for the full back story, click here.) After experiencing the incredible and lively community atmosphere, Lyman-Schmidt and his co-organizers knew they had to bring Porchfest to Philly.

As predicted, West Philly’s diverse, culture-rich neighborhoods provided the perfect landscape for Porchfest to thrive–and helped make 2016’s inaugural event a success.  With one year under wraps, this second installment of Porchfest is sure to be bigger and even more jam-packed (pun most definitely intended.)

Hold tight for more announcements coming the upcoming weeks, including info on an official Porchfest Kickoff Fundraiser event this Spring, and details on how to get involved either as a volunteer, performer, porch show host, or all of the above.

Also, if you have an above and beyond passion for music, organizing, and porches, then consider joining the Porchfest organizing team, which will meet about every 2-3 weeks from now until June. If interested, contact @westphillyporchfest.com and stay up-to-date on info at westphillyporchfest.com
