Porchfest is a family-friendly event featuring musicians of all kinds playing free shows on porches throughout the neighborhood. Stroll from porch to porch and relax on front lawns and sidewalks as you enjoy live local talent!

More About Princeton Porchfest 2023

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 is brought to you by the Arts Council of Princeton.

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, snacks, and an umbrella for rain or to keep the sun off your back. We also suggest a blanket or lawn chair to stay comfortable during the 45-minute sets.

Attendees are welcome to bring water or snacks to enjoy along the route, but we highly recommend checking out the incredible restaurants, bars, and cafes Princeton has to offer. Come for lunch and stay for dinner!

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

No. Princeton Porchfest will be held rain or shine!
