Are you new to the term Porch Fest? Porch Fests are popping up all over the nation and becoming more and more popular. They are a celebration of music and community. They hearken back to the days when neighbors would gather on each others porches and share, laugh, tell stories, sing and play music. Porch Fests are being organized by people in your communities as a way to reconnect with our neighbors and create good times!
On June 8th, 2019 in Owensboro, KY, Griffith Avenue will be transformed into the grounds for Porch Fest!
Music will fill the air, there will be dancing and listening as music lovers stroll down Griffith Avenue to enjoy multiple acts on multiple “stages”.
But there are a few things that set this event apart from most music festivals.
For one, the event is free to the public! PorchFest OBKY invites the audience to stroll freely from “stage” to “stage”, enjoying great musical talent, without worrying about a ticket or a seat.
They will be bringing their own seats!
Residents on Griffith Avenue have agreed to be “Porch Hosts” and convert their beautiful, spacious porches, in this architecturally inspiring area, into “stages” for the afternoon. Their inviting front yards will be open for music listeners to bring their own chairs and sit and enjoy the show.
Ready for something different? Members of the audience can simply pick up their chairs and take a short walk to find another welcoming “stage” and seating.
PorchFest OBKY 2019 will celebrate community togetherness and music. This event is free to the public and suitable for all ages. PorchFest will focus on highlighting the friendly neighborhood and local and regional musical talent.
Owensboro, Kentucky and the Tri-State region at large is home to some of the most accomplished musicians, from guitarists, percussionists, violinists and more to songwriters and talented vocalists. We will hear original music as well as interpretations of releases from other artists.
Wendell Foster will be the charitable beneficiary for PorchFest 2019, and will receive all profits from PorchFest 2019 T-shirts and other merchandise this year!
