Grassroots Midtown Event Features Free Shows From Great Local Performers on Neighborhood Porches

Sac PorchFest – a fun, FREE, community-focused afternoon of great local music in Sacramento’s Midtown neighborhood – will be held for the first time later this month on September 26th. The grassroots event will be held on porches in the Midtown neighborhood – a nod to the beautiful Victorian architecture that marks the area – and will feature performances from top local musicians,

“Sac PorchFest will be a fun afternoon of community and music,” said Mike Phillips, one of the event’s organizers. “We’re showcasing so many of the things that make Sacramento great – our fantastic local artists, beautiful neighborhoods and architecture, and most of all, our friendly and welcoming community that comes together for events like this one.”

The event run from 2 PM to 7 PM on Saturday, September 26th, and will feature performances from a number of great local artists, including Joseph in the Well, Be Brave Bold Robot, Salt Wizard, Dank Ocean, The Family Bandits, Scott Ferreter, One Button Suit, and an ensemble from the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra. The bands will perform throughout the afternoon on a number of porch “stages” in the neighborhood, near the intersection of 21st and I Streets.

“We’re excited to be a part of the launch of this great local event,” said Dean Haakenson, front man for Be Brave Bold Robot. “We’re committed to building and improving the Sacramento-area community, and it’s events like this that make and strengthen Sacramento’s community and artistic scene.”

Porch Fests have been held in dozens of other cities around the country but this is Sacramento’s first year hosting this this fun, community event. Donations will be solicited at the stages to benefit the Mustard Seed School, a local free, private school that serves homeless children.
