Check out the Porchfest map and lineup. Here are some things to note:

Residential Parking restrictions are suspended from 11am-7pm citywide day of PorchFest. This means you don't need to have a permit parking sticker to park in permit restricted areas. However, if you park at a meter, you STILL NEED TO FEED METER or you'll get a ticket. But better, walk or bike.

If you are going to download a Porchfest map, please do so as soon as possible. In the past due to heavy traffic on our Porchfest web page, our website has crashed the day of the event. So if you want a map, print one sooner rather than later.

Right now weather looks okay for Saturday. If by chance forecast worsens, we'll move PorchFest to Sunday (yet it's unlikely we'll do this). If uncertain, call the SAC or visit our Website any time after noon on Friday, May 15.


Please respect the neighbors of PorchFest performers—who may or may not love the noise or the crowds. Do not congregate in someone else’s driveway, block their sidewalks, or block streets. It’s a great community event if folks use common sense and demonstrate respect.

This year, many bands will put out donation jars to collect funds to support post-earthquake relief efforts in Nepal. Look for the PorchFest Supports Nepal flyer and consider making a donation. The Arts Council will collect all donations for Save the Children Nepal. Thanks in advance to all the bands helping out with these efforts and to PorchFest goers who make donations!
