PorchFest Local music happening in a culture of community generosity.
The first PorchFest started in 2007 in Ithaca, New York and has since become a national movement. You will find these community music fests popping up all over the country, from coast to coast. Dayton held a very successful PorchFest last year. Many of our Trojans attended their’s and wanted to bring this festival to Troy, Ohio. So what is PorchFest? Imagine about 20+ bands in a hodgepodge of styles and genres playing throughout the Southwest Historic district on porches, in side-yards, lots and patios. Pick up a walk-able map of the event and choose your favorite bands. Tour one concert after the other! There will be food trucks and artisan tents. And bring some bills to put in your favorite band's cookie jars!
