The second annual Princeton Porchfest will be held Saturday, April 29 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.

Princeton Porchfest FAQ

Neighbors offer their porches, performers volunteer their talents. We pair the two and performances are held throughout the community between 12-6pm, allowing attendees to move from house to house while enjoying music and Princeton hospitality.

Yes! Thanks to the good will of our sponsors, volunteers, performers, residents, community sponsors, and donors, Princeton Porchfest is free to attend.

Princeton Porchfest will be held rain or shine. In the event of weather, come prepared with an umbrella or windbreaker and nothing will stop you from dancin’ in the rain!

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!

Totally. You’re invited to walk, ride bikes, scooters, and/or push strollers as you move from one porch to another. Porches will be organized so that there will be plenty to see and hear close-by. A schedule of performances will be made available in advance so that you can plan which porches to hit.

You don’t need to bring anything, but you’re welcome to bring water, an umbrella for rain or to keep the sun off your back, and a blanket or lawn chair to stay comfortable during the 45-minute sets.

Princeton is a town for foodies! We highly recommend checking out the many incredible restaurants, bars, and cafes Princeton has to offer, but especially want to highlight sponsors Small World Coffee, Maman, and Jammin’ Crepes.

Come for lunch and stay for dinner! Thank you for supporting our small business community.

The Arts Council welcomes you to use our facilities at 102 Witherspoon Street.

The town has three parking garages that will put you right in the heart of the Porchfest map. Check out your options here.
