Come to Historic Springfield for…
Live Music, Food and Fun Take Over the Parks and Porches of Historic Springfield in Downtown Jacksonville, Florida
What is PorchFest?
The fourth annual Jacksonville PorchFest will take place November 4, 2017 in Jacksonville’s oldest neighborhood, Historic Springfield.
The family-friendly free event features musicians from many genres. Organizers have selected more than 30 acts 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. This year our main stage in Klutho Park will feature a noon performance by Kim Reteguiz and the Black Cat Bones and an evening show headlined by Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys.
Food trucks and artisan booths open at noon, and porch performances run from 1 to 5. 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 at Florida State College at Jacksonville.
"PorchFest was magical. It was a 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
