What is PorchFest?

PorchFest is an afternoon of free music performed outside of people’s homes. Newton now joins the 100+ other cities across the country who hold this every year.

For 2019, there were 100+ musical groups performing all over Auburndale, Lower Falls and Waban. Enjoy a diverse line up of local talent from country to pop, classical, reggae, blues, rock, jazz, Latin, R&B and more.

Please also consider via Paypal. This is a grassroots effort funded entirely by donations.
