PorchFest Quincy 2018

JUNE 23, 2018 3 PM - 9 PM

PorchFests are FREE annual music events held across the United States and in Canada on front porches. Started in Ithaca, New York in 2007, PorchFest events bring local musicians and neighborhoods together to celebrate and create a sense of community.

In 2016, Walter Hubley and Ian Cain started PorchFest Quincy with a crew of amazing volunteers and created a wonderful day of music and fun. In the first year, the festival had 70 bands at 43 porch locations and an estimated 6,000 people attended. In the second year, the festival had 110 bands at 70 porch locations. The same team is excited to bring PorchFest Quincy back again in 2018!

PorchFest music festivals began as a means for neighbors and local community members to highlight their music on front porches. Bands, singers, and instrumentalists participate in the festival for no other reason than to showcase their talents and engage the community. Music is diverse and can range from country to pop, classical, reggae, blues, rock, jazz, Latino, R&B, and many others. Musicians voluntarily take to the "stage" on porches at their designated times and perform for the public.
