where can i eat? you will find a number of great restaurant options on main street. ask your porch hosts for a recommendation!
where can i find a bathroom? commercial porches all have washrooms, private porches may or may not invite people in at their discretion.
is this a paid gig? no. audience donations go to cover costs, buy beer for the after-party, then all the rest goes to our charities as listed here.
all artists will be listed in our main facebook event, in your specific porch event as well as on our lineup webpage. if you have given us a link, this link will also be on our webpage.
please help us promote your porch! share the main facebook event and your porch event with your friends on facebook, send out the details via email or other social networks. if your band has a facebook page that you have shared with us, we’ll add you as a co-host for your porch’s event. if your band doesn't have a facebook page, please add one of the porchfest organisers as a friend on facebook so we can add you as a co-host to the event. then, please like, share and invite away!
