Grassroots Midtown Event Features Free Shows From Great Local Performers on Neighborhood Porches
Sac PorchFest is a fun, free, community-focused afternoon of great local music in Midtown Sacramento. The inaugural PorchFest kicked off in September 2015, and we are bringing the music out again on October 1, 2016! The grassroots event will be held on porches in the Boulevard Park neighborhood and will feature performances from top local musicians. Click here to see pictures of last year’s PorchFest!
“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 will begin at 2 PM on Saturday, October 1, and will feature performances from a number of great local artists, including some returning guests from last year. Stay tuned for a lineup! The bands will perform throughout the afternoon on a number of porch “stages” in the neighborhood, near the intersection of 21st and I Streets.
PorchFests have been held in dozens of other cities around the country, and this will be Sacramento’s second 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.
