Past Event

North Heights Porchfest is a grassroots music festival celebrating local music, art, food and community.  For an afternoon, the front porches of the beautiful historic homes in North Heights become the stage for musical performances of all genres.  There are artisan booths (only handmade arts) and food trucks set up in a central location.  When you arrive at the event you will get a map and music schedule and be able to stroll the neighborhood at your own pace, listening to the music of your choice plus shopping and eating anytime during the day.  This is a FREE event for the entire community and it is family-friendly.  We will have a collaborative art project for all attendees to participate in, as well as rock painting for kids of all ages.

For those with mobility challenges, the 500 block of North Moffet will be closed and there will be a musical performance on that block every hour, so little to no walking required, and seating provided.  A accessible portable restroom will be available.  Food truck row is just one block away. We will also provide games for kids on this block so that an entire family can come and enjoy music, sunshine and fresh air together.

Hub of the event is located at N. Moffet and E. Street.
