Frequently Asked Questions
What is PorchFest?
PorchFest is a free event held in Historic Springfield, a community just north of downtown Jacksonville, Florida on November 4th, 2023. During the afternoon, dozens of bands perform on porches throughout this beautiful neighborhood. Food trucks are plentiful and a variety of craft beer and wine is available for purchase. Proceeds of PorchFest support arts related activities in Jacksonville’s urban core.
Is PorchFest really free?
Yes – thanks to numerous sponsors we are able to present this event at no cost to our guests. We do pay all of our performers, so please consider purchasing a t-shirt and beverages to help support PorchFest. Donations are always welcome.
How do I know what bands are performing and where to find them?
Use the PorchFest Interactive Guide on your mobile device or pick up a free paper map at our welcome tent in Sesquicentennial Park.
Is PorchFest walkable? And is it pet and child friendly?
Yes – our route is only a few blocks long, and the streets where bands are performing are closed to make this event especially pedestrian, bicycle, child and pet friendly. Friendly dogs on leashes are more than welcome. We love kids and kids love PorchFest – all of our music is family friendly.
