The third annual Princeton Porchfest will be held Saturday, April 27 from 12-6pm.

Porchfest is a walkable music festival where neighbors offer up their front porches as DIY concert venues. Talented local performers play rotating sets throughout the neighborhood during this day-long celebration of music, art, and our wonderful community. Stroll from porch to porch to enjoy live, local talent!
Porchfest is free, open to the public, and designed to be easily accessible by foot and bike. Plus, town is full of amazing options for lunch, dinner, and drinks.  

Find your favorite porch, band, genre, and other Porchfest location info on our interactive Map!

Princeton Porchfest FAQ

Princeton Porchfest is brought to you by the Arts Council of Princeton. We are an independent non-profit arts center with the mission of building community through the arts. Porchfest is our mission in action!

Neighbors offer their porches, performers volunteer their talents. We pair the two and performances are held throughout the community between 12-5pm, allowing attendees to move from house to house while enjoying music and Princeton hospitality. At 5:15pm, the closing concert is held at the Arts Council’s 102 Witherspoon porch. This year’s closer is The Prisms, a rock band that will have you on your feet!

Our interactive map and list of performers is sorted by genre, so you’ll be able to plan your perfect Porchfest day.
