Everything You Need to Know About Somerville PorchFest

It’s that time of year when local musicians emerge from their rehearsal spaces and take over the porches of Somerville.

Organized by the Somerville Arts Council, PorchFest allows musicians and bands to perform sets on an underused public venue: the porch.

Expect an eclectic array of music. Past PorchFests have offered everything from American space rock to gospel.

There will be three time slots based on where porches are located.

Those performing on porches east of Central St. will take the stage from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Those performing between Central St. and Willow St. will play from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Those performing west of Willow Street play from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
