What is PorchFest?
Jacksonville is now home to one of the most popular events sweeping the country. The third annual Jacksonville PorchFest, a music festival held on front porches, will take place November 5, 2016, in Jacksonville’s oldest neighborhood, Historic Springfield.
The family-friendly free event features musicians from a wide variety of genres. Organizers select 20 performers to play on porches throughout the historic district. Attendees stroll from porch to porch and “camp out” on front lawns as they enjoy live, local talent. Last year's event featured an evening performance by New Orleans funk band FlowTribe, presented by SMG and the Ritz Theatre.
Food trucks and artisan booths open at noon, and musical performances run from 1 to 9. Maps of porches and performers are available at the corner of Third and Silver Streets in Klutho Park. Parking is available along Main Street and near Klutho Park.
"PorchFest was magical. It was day for people from all over Jacksonville to celebrate the joy of life while listening to local musicians on the beautiful front porches of Historic Springfield."~ Michelle Guglielmo Gilliam, Springfield resident
