West Philly Porchfest is returning Saturday, June 8, with free music performances taking place around the area from 12 – 6 p.m. This year, 95 porches are hosting shows featuring musicians and groups representing a variety of musical genres.

Just like last year, all performances are divided into three groups. From 12 to 2 p.m., shows will be held on porches on and south of Baltimore Ave. between 43rd and 52nd Streets. From 2 to 4 p.m., performances will be held between Baltimore Ave. and Walnut St. from 41st to 50th. And finally, from 4 to 6 p.m., check out performances between Baltimore Ave. and Market St. from 46th to 59th streets. 

One again, the organizers have put all the participating porches on a map, so go to the West Philly Porchfest website for more info.

West Philly Porchfest’s concept has been modeled after Somerville Porchfest held right outside of Boston. The number of the porches participating in the event has tripled since 2016 when the Porchfest was held for the first time in this neighborhood.
